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.
