Bicycle transport on city buses

Neither electric bicycles nor electric scooters can currently be transported on city buses.

Bicycle transport on suburban buses

On suburban buses, bicycle transport is possible, but is limited to the space available in the luggage compartment, in which the bicycle must be placed by the traveller. It is therefore necessary to ensure that there is space. The availability of seats is variable and depends on the type of bus; on average, it is possible to transport up to 2 bicycles.

It is advisable to be equipped with elastic bands to secure the bicycle and limit its movement in the luggage compartment. The company is not liable for any damage that transport may cause.

Only single-seat bicycles with normal traction, i.e. without any type of motor, are permitted on the rack and in the luggage compartment; electric bicycles and scooters are therefore not permitted.
