RIDOT encourages motorists to learn more about sharing the road with cyclists. Download this great brochure.

Bike & Ride

Bring your bike on public transit to make it easier to ride to work, school or just to extend your ride and visit new places. Bike racks are on all RIPTA buses and bikes are allowed on MBTA commuter rail trains during off-peak hours. No biking allowed on the Jamestown Verrazzano and Newport Pell bridges. Use RIPTA Bus #64.
