The following are necessary to ensure a safe and efficient transportation system. Failure to comply with these rules, regulations, procedures, or guidelines may result in the denial of service and/or arrest.
HART makes it easy to ride the bus with our Bikes on Buses program. By combining two modes of transportation, you can greatly expand your range of travel.
- Big bikes go on the rack - Maximum wheel size for folding bicycles is 20 inches
- Be ready - Bicycles must be folded and bagged before boarding the bus or van
- Folded bicycles go underneath the seat or in front of the customer
- Motor-powered bicycles are not permitted inside HART vehicles or on bus/van bicycle racks
Bicycle racks are on all HART buses and HARTFlex vans. The following bicycle rack rules apply:
- Each bus and van bicycle rack accommodates two bicycles
- Only single-seat, two-wheel bicycles are permitted
- If the rack is full, customers should be prepared to wait for the next bus or choose a safe location to lock up their bicycle
You can also take your bike with you and transfer to a PSTA bus without a special permit. Go to
for more information.
You should attach an identification number to your bicycle — whether it's the manufacturer's serial number, a license plate or a sturdy decal — and keep a copy of this number with them. This will greatly facilitate the process of claiming lost bicycles. In addition, the Tampa Police Department encourages bicyclists to register their bicycles with its Bicycle Registration Theft Protection Program to assist in recovering stolen bikes.
