Can I transport my Yuba Cargo Bike on my car? YES, with the right bike rack!

At this time, there are only a few companies that manufacture racks that can handle the length and weight of cargo bikes. We’ve listed a few examples below. When looking for rack that fits your cargo bike, there are a few things you should be aware of: 

  • Do not transport an electric cargo bike on a vehicle with the battery installed. Remove and carry inside the vehicle.
  • Always make sure to check with your local and state laws regarding the use of hitch-mounted racks.

Here are three ways to bring your cargo bike by car:
