Bicycle carriage

Other considerations:

  • You can also bring e-bikes, pedelecs, tandems, recumbent bicycles and tricycles on board with you as long as there is space in the designated bicycle areas.

  • Bikes with engines (e.g. motorbikes or mopeds) may not be brought onto public transport.

  • Side pockets must be removed before boarding.
  • Generally, rail replacement buses cannot carry bicycles.
  • Reservations are not possible. However, we would appreciate it if you could inform us if you are travelling in a large group so that our customer representatives can help you board the multi-use areas quickly and easily with your bicycles.
