VCTC Bike Loading

HOW TO LOAD YOUR BIKE ON A VCTC BUS

VCTC Buses are equipped with undercarriage compartments for bicycle storage. In addition, some buses have additional bike racks on the front of the bus. All VCTC buses have space for a minimum of four (4) bicycles. We advise that passengers be prepared to lock their bike at the bus stop if the bike racks/areas are full.

Upon entering and exiting the bus, let the driver know that you have a bicycle. For safety, the driver will assist with opening and closing the undercarriage area door. If using the front rack, please remind the driver upon exiting the bus that you have a bike on the front rack.

VCTC is not responsible for any theft or damage to your bicycle or personal belongings. Unclaimed bikes will be kept at Lost and Found and held for no more than 30 days. Please call 800.438.1112 (Monday–Friday, 7 a.m.- 6 p.m.) if you leave your bike or other belongings behind.

All VCTC Intercity buses are equipped with wheelchair ramps which can accommodate wheelchairs and three-wheeled scooters that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines. In addition, VCTC buses can be lowered at the push of a button by the driver to make them easier to board. Service animals, such as guide dogs, may ride the bus.

All transfer point bus stops and major intersections are announced by onboard annunciators. Additionally, as the bus approaches a transfer point bus stop, the onboard annunciator announces the bus line number, which is heard externally by waiting passengers. The bus driver will announce any other stop request.

For persons who are unable to ride VCTC buses due to a disability, paratransit operators provide dial-a-ride service in every city of Ventura County. Click here to find dial-a-ride service in your area.
