Rack & Roll winter pilot returns

Image - Rack & Roll winter pilot returns

Good news for all-season cyclists — the Rack & Roll winter pilot is happening again this winter!

Even better news — all OC Transpo buses will be equipped with a bike rack so riders can continue to Rack & Roll.

The Rack & Roll program combines biking and transit with ease – through the spring, summer, fall and now winter!  

The Rack & Roll winter pilot was first introduced on double-decker buses last winter. Continuing the pilot this winter will help us to determine if an all-season program will be permanent.
