Biking and walking are two of the easiest means of transportation. Is your worksite too far away? Consider walking or biking for part of your commute and make this your exercise routine.
To keep your bike secure, you can use the bike lockers at various metro locations for a small seasonal fee.
· Bike locker information & locations
Ride the transit and take your bike along. All metro trains and buses have bike racks available.
· Metro Transit’s Bike and Ride program
There are dozens of bike lanes and trails spread out across the Twin Cities. You can buy a commuter bike map showing metro area trails, bike lanes, and streets recommended for biking. Maps are available to purchase at most metro bike shops.
