'Tires only' bike racks are made from steel and come in standard and narrow profiles, for one, two or three bicycles. Some of these racks are sturdy enough to be used on city transit buses where the latches may be opened and closed many times and the racks may be subject to impact from other vehicles on city streets.

C-bracket bike racks fasten to the front bumper of a bus using existing holes on the bumper, though you will have to drill some holes to add stability, whereas the 'stand-off' fastener uses brackets to fasten to the bumper and is easy to install. There are some specialty models for certain makes of trucks like Ford, and for certain types of buses that use Class III hitches. Prices on these 'industrial strength' models vary widely, so you'll need to check with the manufacturer and distributor to find one that fits your budget and your needs!.
