Bike to Work

  • Request a safe place for your bike at work.
  • Ask your employer about starting an employee benefits program that rewards employees for bicycling work. (Federal Bike Credit)
  • Check with your employer about facilities for showering at or near work.
  • Wear a helmet, reflective clothing and use lights at night.
  • In Oregon, bikes are vehicles and have rights and responsibilities according to the law.

Try A One Way Bike Trip (And Bus Back!)

Maybe it’s too cold in the morning, but the afternoon promises to be perfect for a bike ride. Or possibly the ride to work is an easy downhill glide, while the trip home is an uphill climb. Either way, you can look to the bus schedule to help you out. Each LTD bus is equipped with racks to carry three bikes at no extra charge.
