I tried to take my bike on VIA once. The driver came but said he didn’t have any way to carry my bike. I called VIA back and the agent said they couldn’t carry my bike that day.
Sorry to hear you had that issue. In order to bring your bike with you when riding Via Metro STL, please request two seats in the app. If you have additional questions, please call the Via team directly at 636.251.3328.
