BIKE AND RIDE FOR FREE ON BIKE TO WORK DAY
Bicycle commuters ride free on TANK, Metro, BCRTA & CTC on May 17.
Those looking to give commuting by bike a try will have the perfect opportunity on May 17 when transit systems around the Cincinnati region partner to offer free fare for those with a bike.
In celebration of National Bike to Work Day, May 17, bus riders who load a bike onto the bus bike racks will ride for FREE on TANK, Metro, Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA) and Clermont Transportation Connection (CTC).
The day will showcase just how easy it is to bike and ride every day.
All TANK, Metro and BCRTA buses, as well as many CTC buses, are equipped with front-loading secure bike racks. Each rack accommodates two bikes. Bikes are not allowed on board buses unless they are foldable and can fit under a seat.
Metro and TANK have been recognized as “Bike Friendly Destinations” since 2011, providing advocacy and infrastructure improvements to support bicycling for employees and riders.
More information on how to bike and ride, as well as a video explaining how to use the bus bike racks, can be found on Metro’s website here and on TANK’s website here.

You're Invited to National Get On Board Day
SAVE THE DATE: NATIONAL GET ON BOARD DAY TO BE HELD ON APRIL 25
Get on Board for Public Transit
The Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK) and Cincinnati Metro will join with other public transportation systems nationwide to participate in National Get On Board Day on Thursday, April 25.
Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the 2019 National Get On Board Day is a day that encourages people to support public transportation and showcases the benefits it brings to communities. Each weekday in the U.S., 34 million people board public transportation.
Additionally, public transportation is a cornerstone of local economies in urban, suburban, and rural communities. In fact, public transportation helps to make a community economically prosperous and competitive. Every $1 invested in public transportation generates approximately $4 in economic returns, powering community growth and revitalization.
We hope you will join TANK and members of your community #GetOnBoard Thursday, April 25, 2019.
