Bike racks


Bike racks are available on the following buses:

  • 24 Te Awamutu
  • 20 Cambridge
  • 21 Northern Connector 
  • 22 Morrinsville Paeroa buses
  • 23 Raglan, Raglan Assist and Whatawhata
  • Taupo Connector


There is no charge for using the bike racks.

There are two bike spaces available on each bus and spaces are first in, first served.

Each bike must weigh under 25kg.

Only bikes with 16” diameter, or larger, wheels are able to use the racks. Specifically, wheel sizes may only be between 16”/40.6cm and 29”/73cm/700c and up to 3”/7.62cm width. Bikes must have a maximum wheelbase dimension of 44”/111cm.

Loading and unloading the bike is the responsibility of the passenger. Before loading your bike, please remove any loose items, such as drink bottles and helmets. Always load and unload your bike from the kerbside.

Bikes are insured up to $1,500 when on the bike rack.

Electric bikes that meet all of the above minimum and maximum dimensions and with sealed gel, lithium Ion, or NiCad batteries are permitted.

Electric bikes with liquid lead acid batteries are not permitted.

Petrol and other similarly powered bikes are not permitted.

If you experience any problems while using the bike rack, please notify the driver immediately.

We always aim to operate buses with bike racks, however there may be times when this is not possible due to operational reasons e.g. bus breakdowns.
