As a follow-up to our story back in July about the new “Hang Bike Here” stickers on TriMet MAX trains, the transit agency sent out an alert today with additional information about how to load your bike on MAX.
Here are their three main rules:
1. Check to see if there’s room.
As MAX approaches, scan the train to see if there’s room on board. If it’s too crowded to board safely, you’ll need to wait for the next train.
2. Let other riders board first.
Wait for other riders to exit and enter the train before you board.
3. Board through the door with the bike symbol.
And here’s one of their “important reminders”:
“Bikes are allowed on MAX only if there is room, so if all bike spaces are full or the train is too crowded to board safely, you must wait for the next train. Consider taking your trip before or after rush hour, parking your bike at the station or using a compact folding bike instead.”
