The Tern Passenger System is a framework that includes all their passenger-carrying accessories, and always requires four elements in order to safely carry passengers:
Seating: Purpose-built rear seating, chosen according to the passenger's needs
Handhold: Something for the passenger to hold on to, other than the bike itself
Foot support: Fixed platforms or dedicated foot pegs on both sides of the bike
Foot and leg protection: Something to prevent feet and legs from getting caught in the spinning wheel
