Taking bicycles on buses and bicycle parking facilities

You can take your bicycle on regional buses. There are also several good parking facilities at larger bus stops where you can leave your bike and then travel by bus.

 

Regional buses

You can bring your bicycle on board free of charge, space allowing, and secure it at the back of the bus. There is space for up to 2 bicycles per regional bus on a first-come, first-served basis. You bring your bicycle on board at your own risk.

 

You must hang up and take down your bicycle from the bus yourself, but always tell the bus driver that you are bringing a bicycle on board. The bus driver does not have any straps or lashes to secure your bicycle, so make sure you have them with you. The bicycle stands on the buses, however, are designed to be used without straps.

 

City and express buses

Bicycles cannot be taken on city and express buses. Expresses buses are the ones on all routes with a three-digit number beginning with an 8.

 

Bicycles on trains

Would you like to find out about bringing your bicycle on a train? We recommend that you contact the rail company you plan to travel with. We have a list of the main rail companies operating in our county here. 

 

Bicycle shelters and parking facilities

It’s usually easy to bring your bicycle to the nearest bus stop. To make life easier, there are different kinds of parking facilities and shelters in the county where bicycles can be parked close to bus stops.

 

Here are a few tips on where you can park your bicycle:
