Lock the bike back at any station. Wait for the green light on the dock to confirm the bike is secure. Bike Chattanooga staff are constantly monitoring stations to make sure stations are neither full nor empty.

Convenient access to the attractions, convention center, shopping, hotels & employment sites in the Downtown area. All Shuttle buses are wheelchair accessible. Since its initiation in 1992, CARTA’s Downtown Shuttle has carried over 12 million passengers. The quiet, environmentally friendly, electric buses have run more than 2.6 million miles.
