Bikes on bus in Yarra Ranges

20220311_111210.jpg

Several bus routes operating in the Yarra Ranges are being upgraded with busses equipped with bicycle racks. Commuters using a bus with a bike rack can now ride their bike and load it on the bus to bring on their journey.

Bike racks are being added to busses on the following routes:

  • 683 Chirnside Park – Warburton via Lilydale Station & Seville & Yarra Junction
  • 685 Lilydale – Healesville via Lilydale Station & Coldstream & Yarra Glen
  • 686 Healesville – Badger Creek
  • 687 Chum Creek – Healesville

Bike racks can only fit two bikes at a time and are available on a first-come, first served-basis. Children under 13 must be assistant by an adult when loading a bike onto a rack.

This initiative originated from a project led by the Bus Association Victoria.
