Yes! Google Maps, Komoot and Strava are awesome applications to help you plan your bike ride. You can enter in your starting address and destination, select that you’re riding your bike and they give you the best biker-friendly route to travel (sometimes with multiple options!)
The great thing about commuting to work on your bike is that you can choose what your day looks like! You can bike to work and then take the bus back. Or do the reverse so you don’t have to take a shower once you arrive at work. Some people bring their bike along with them so they can bike instead of walking between bus or train stops. And other people love to bike to and from work, adding extra loops and detours to get a good workout in before and after work! Build the ride that’s best for you with your bike!
All Pierce Transit and Sound Transit buses have racks on the front of their buses so you can take your bike along when you ride. Pierce Trips has space for two bikes per bus and Sound Transit has space for three. Check out more information about taking your bike on the bus here.
First, research different types of bike locks to find the best one for your needs. Then, make sure you use it properly and securely lock your bike in designated racks or bike parking areas. Using a U-lock to secure the back wheel and frame with an additional cable through the front wheel can help prevent theft.
