On Friday, May 17, 2024, Laketran (Lake County, OH) will be offering free rides to passengers who ride their bikes to the bus stop as part of National Bike to Work Day.

In an effort to encourage healthy and environmental friendly commuting options, passengers on Local Routes 1-9 and Park-n-Ride Routes 10-12 who ride their bikes to the bus stop will ride Laketran for free.

“Laketran is participating in the national effort to promote transportation options other than driving a car,” Laketran CEO Ben Capelle said. “There are many benefits to biking and riding public transit. There are the obvious health benefits, but biking and riding also has an impact on local air quality and improves access throughout our region with multi-modal transportation options.”

Laketran’s Rack-n-Roll program carries nearly 3,000 bicycles a year. The agency’s electric transit buses, that operate Local Routes 1-9, hold three bikes on their on-board bike racks. Meanwhile, Laketran Park-n-Ride Routes 10-12 coach buses are equipped with two on-board bike racks for riders to secure their bikes before boarding.

Laketran’s transit center at Lakeland Community College and all Park-n-Ride lots also have bike racks for riders to lock their bikes if they prefer not to take their bikes with them on-board.
