Boarding the bus


Boarding with a Mobility Device


MITS vans are lift-equipped and will accommodate mobility devices, such as wheelchairs, scooters, and walkers, provided the devices fit within the ADA specified boarding envelope.  This includes all 30” wide by 48” long mobility devices – (measured starting from two inches above the ground) that do not weigh more than 600 pounds when occupied. Larger devices may not qualify due to lift capacity and interior van configuration.

Bike rack instructions


BIKES ON BUSES


All JeT buses have bike racks that hold up to two single-seat, two-wheeled, non-motorized bicycles. Regular fares apply for each passen­ger. Your bike rides FREE!


Using the rack is easy. As the bus approaches, have your bike ready to load. Never approach the bus from the street. Stay on the curb. Remove any items that could fall off, like a water bottle or pannier. Tell the bus op­erator that you are loading a bike. Squeeze the handle and pull down to release the folded bike rack. Place your bike in the trough furthest from the bus with the front tire facing the clamping arm, toward the street. If the outside trough is full, load your bike into the trough closest to the bus. In this position, the front tire will face the curb. Raise the clamping arm as far up on the wheel as you can. Before unloading, make sure to let the operator know you’ll be removing your bike. Lift up the clamping arm and remove your bike, folding up the rack if it’s empty.
