Individual Bicycle Transport

Within Switzerland, bicycles can be taken along on many SBB trains and private railways as well as PostBuses (valid ticket required).

The respective coaches and buses are marked with a cycle pictogram. In the SBB online timetable under “Advanced Search” the option “Carriage of bicycles required (Switzerland only)” can be selected, which shows all connections where individual bicycle transport is possible.

On some train connections, individual bicycle transport is subject to reservation surcharge. From 21 March to 31 October, a reservation for bicycle transportation is required on all InterCity trains (IC) that travel through the Gotthard Base Tunnel. The reservation can be made at the station or via SBB mobile app or up to five minutes before departure. The reservation surcharge is CHF 5 per bike.
