All MAX buses are now equipped with bike racks.  The bike racks are located on the front bumper of the bus and are capable of accommodating two bikes at a time.  No additional fare is required.  The bike racks are available to all MAX passengers (except on BART Express route) on a first-come, first-served basis.
