CityLink is offering free rides to passengers traveling with a bicycle on fixed route buses during Bike to Work Week starting on May 14, 2018 through May 18, 2018.  May is National Bike Month, and the week of May 14-18 is dedicated to the promotion of biking to work instead of driving. This free ride offer during Bike to Work Week is in conjunction with CityLink’s continued support of the local non-profit bicycle advocacy organization, Bike Peoria.  CityLink and Bike Peoria are allies in promoting alternative and multimodal transportation options in the Peoria area.
Passengers are encouraged to ride their bike and use CityLink to get to work that week in celebration and chronicle their journey by posting photos and videos on social media and tagging CityLink (@CityLinkPeoria) and Bike Peoria (@BikePeoria) on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #BikeToWorkPeoria.
Please note that the free ride offer is limited to passengers using the bike rack located on the front of CityLink buses, and the majority of CityLink bike racks can accommodate no more than two bicycles at a time.  Space on the bike racks and the free ride offer is available on a first come first serve basis for each bus.  To learn how to use the rack on the bus, visit  There are bike racks available for passengers to lock their bikes to at the downtown Transit Center (407 SW Adams) should bike space be unavailable to use on the buses.
The Greater Peoria Mass Transit District (CityLink) has provided affordable public transportation to the citizens of the Greater Peoria area since 1970.  With a strong fleet of 53 buses, passengers can depend on CityLink to get them where they need to go.  CityLink's buses use state-of-the-art technology to provide transportation that is clean and energy efficient.
