Travel on Public Transport with a Bicycle

If you intend to take your bicycle with you, remember that it can be transported on trains only, not on the buses!

If you wish to carry your bicycle on the train, you will have to buy a baggage ticket. Keep in mind that bicycles may be transported in railway carriages equipped with special bicycle racks and the number of bicycle racks must match the number of bicycles actually carried. If the carriage is not equipped with bicycle racks, the maximum number of bicycles carried in the carriage may not exceed 5 bicycles. Train carriages that are equipped with bicycle racks are marked with labels next to the door. If the carriage does not have bicycle racks, the bicycles are placed in spaces between seats as indicated by the conductor-controller. When travelling on a train with your bicycle, plan your time and arrive promptly for the train to enter the carriage and place the bicycle in the intended place without causing delays. If you are a group of cyclists (more than 15 people), please apply 48 hours in advance by calling to (+371) 67232135 to arrange for the opportunities of reaching the required station.
