MARC riders may bike to the downtown station and use the bike racks provided to secure their bikes. Commuters can bike to a TransIT bus stop, secure their bikes on the bus bike rack, and ride TransIT to their work sites.
Biking to work improves air quality, reduces gas costs and commuting stress, and improves fitness. Prior to biking to work for the first time, cyclists should tune up their bikes, map their routes, check connections needed for bus, train or rail, and make a trial run.
