If you're planning to use your Tern cargo bike to carry a kid or even an adult passenger, please take a moment to learn more about how you can do this safely.

How to Carry Passengers on a Tern Cargo Bike

Carrying passengers is easier than most people think. Just follow these two principles:

  1. Stay within the weight limits—your rear rack limit, and your bike's max gross vehicle weight.
  2. Select the appropriate passenger-carrying accessories, which must always include seating, handhold, foot and leg protection, and foot support for your passenger.

Each bike platform will have different weight limits and different accessories to help you safely carry passengers. Find your guide in the section below.
