Bike & Ride With Us

If you enjoy riding your bike during the fall season, New Jersey and the surrounding region offer many bike trails for your recreational pleasure, many of them close to our service.

When traveling on NJ TRANSIT with your bike, plan ahead. Carry a smart phone and paper schedules with you to determine the best boarding locations (paper schedules in case your phone battery runs out).

There is no additional charge for bringing a bike aboard our vehicles and no permit is necessary. We simply ask that you be courteous and considerate of fellow customers.

Collapsible bikes are allowed on trains at all times; standard-frame bikes are permitted except on peak-period, peak-direction weekday trains. Bicycles are permitted at all times on buses with bike racks on the front or with luggage compartments on a first-come, first-served basis. Bikes also can be safely stored on River LINE trains at all times, and on Newark Light Rail and Hudson-Bergen Light Rail trains during weekday off-peak hours, and all day on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

If an NJ TRANSIT employee or an employee of an entity under contract to NJ TRANSIT considers a bicycle a safety hazard, the bike will not be permitted on the vehicle.
