MISSOULA - Missoula city officials say getting a bike onto a bus can be a stressful process. On Wednesday, the city held the "bikes on buses" event at the Mountain Line Transfer Center to help bikers avoid the hassle.
Bus riders got demonstrations on how to properly secure their bikes to the racks on the back of the bus.
City officials say every bus holds three bikes, but many people don't want to try the racks out.
"When we asked people if they do use the racks, they say no I've never done it before. I don't want to hold people up in traffic, I don't want to make the driver angry, or something like that, so we give people a chance to do it at pace that's good for them, and show people it is really easy, and they'll be pros when they do it in real time," said Ben Weiss, Program Manager of the Missoula bicycle/pedestrian office.
"Bikes on Buses" is only the first event held this month for National Bike Month.
