Bikes on Board

Today we know that more and more people are cycling, in fact there were more than 66 million cyclists in the U.S. in 2017, up from 51 million in 2012. Many are choosing the bike for their daily commute. That is why we have equipped the GBT bus fleet with bike racks — and riders can take their bike along on their bus ride at no additional cost.

Pequonnock River Rail Trail

Pequonnock River Trail

 

Many people don’t know it, but there’s a 16-mile walking and cycling trail that runs from Seaside Park in Bridgeport through Beardsley Park into Trumbull and on into Monroe to the Newtown line. The final segments in Bridgeport have just been planned and construction is scheduled to begin in 2019.

 

But don’t let that stop you from checking out the trail, starting in Beardsley Park and heading North. The trail crosses several GBT bus routes so you can take your bike on the bus then hop off and enjoy the trail. You can see where the bus stops are on the interactive map on the PRT website.
