Lextran Offers Bike 'n Ride

In an effort to make our buses even more flexible for public needs, Lextran is now offering the Bike 'n Ride Program. Using Bike 'n Ride offers the flexibility of a bicycle, and the safety and comfort of a bus ride across the busy Lexington city streets. This can be especially beneficial for University of Kentucky students needing to get around campus and around town!

All Lextran buses are equipped with a bike rack.
