Why take your bike on the train?

Going on a bike ride? Environmentally friendly train travel and cycling go well together. A unique advantage of our trains is the option to transport a bicycle.

Where to get a ticket for a bike?

  • at a ticket counter
  • in the e-shop
  • from the conductor on the train

How to transport a bike on the train?

You can use the following services:

  • Oversized luggage – on trains marked with a bicycle symbol you can transport a bike under your own supervision. You will load the bike into the indicated space yourself.
  • Luggage storage during transport – on trains marked with a suitcase symbol it is possible, with the help of a conductor, to load your bike into a special space for transporting bicycles. Your bike will be under the conductor’s supervision for the duration of the transport.

For transporting a bicycle, a carriage fee is paid according to the number of kilometres travelled. In the luggage storage during transport service, there is an additional one-off storage fee. You will pay the carriage fee and the storage fee to the conductor directly.

On certain trains, it is possible to reserve a space for your bicycle, and on other trains such a reservation is required.
