Bring your bike on the shuttle.
All GRID-branded buses used on our shared services are equipped with bike racks. If you are planning on bringing your bike on the shuttle, check out the instructions ahead of time by clicking this link.
Be prepared for emergencies.
Our Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program extends to cyclists who experience flat tires or other bike malfunctions while commuting to and from work—or who, for example, bike to work and then become too ill to bike home.
Schedule workplace bicycling events & clinics.
We can schedule virtual or in-person route planning & mode shift counseling events, bike safety checks, maintenance & winterization clinics, instructor-led group rides, and other cycling-related programming—which we can facilitate directly or through a local bike shop. Contact us to learn more.
Winterize your bicycle commute.
Request a Winter Cycling Gift Pack, including reflective decals and hand & foot warmers, by emailing us. Put “Winter Cycling Gift Pack” in the subject line and include your mailing address in the body of the email.
We can also bring all of this information to your worksite, along with plenty of giveaways, as a pop-up clinic!
Accept the Mode Shift Challenge.
As part of statewide Baystate Bike Month, 128 Business Council runs a yearly May Mode Shift Challenge, during which participants can win prizes by shifting trips from car to bike —or from car to walking or public transit, including our shuttles. We can also sponsor an organization-specific Mode Shift Challenge—either during May or another time of year.
Join 128 Business Council’s ADA Tour de Cure team.
The American Diabetes Association‘s Tour de Cure offers supported routes ranging in length from 15 to 100 miles so cyclists of all abilities can participate—and you can also join the team virtually! 128BC has chosen this event as part of our annual programming because of the ADA’s proven impact record and their year-round approach to training & community-building. Participation is open to all riders of The Grid shuttle system; affiliates of any of our TMA member organizations; and friends, family & supporters. Join or support our team!
Set up bikeshare programs & cycling infrastructure.
We can assist you in connecting to bikeshare programs or in establishing a private bikeshare system for your business or community. We can also help you install bike-friendly infrastructure at your workplace, development, or community hub, including bike racks, cages, lockers and shower facilities. Contact us to learn more.
