Bike Racks

CobbLinc was one of the first public transit agencies in the state to provide bike racks on buses.

The bike racks are mounted on the front of the buses and hold two bicycles. These racks are designed to allow riders to load their bikes from curbside. Most riders will be able to load and unload their buses in less than 20 seconds, which will minimize any schedule delays. All CobbLinc drivers have received the recommended safety training. Additionally, with a front-loading design, the driver is visually able to monitor activities.
