Your bicycle on the train

On ÖBB trains, you have several options of taking your bicycle along.

Whether you prefer a pleasant ride around a lake or want to conquer the highest peaks on your mountain bike: countless bike trails throughout Austria await you. On ÖBB trains, you have several options of taking your bicycle along.

You can take your bicycle along on most local and long-distance trains. Within Austria, you will need a special bicycle ticket which costs 10% of a full price ticket 2nd class for the route (a minimum fee of € 2.- applies). In addition to this, you can also purchase weekly or monthly tickets for your bicycle. For international routes, we offer you the Biking International Ticket at a price of € 12.-.

Door-to-Door luggage service

If you would prefer not to transport your bicycle by train, you can have it collected from your home and transported to your holiday destination with our convenient door-to-door luggage service.

How to get your bicycle ticket

You can buy your bicycle ticket up to six months in advance: online, via the ÖBB App, at the ÖBB Customer Service at +43 (0)5 1717, and from the ÖBB ticket counters.

A note for all e-bikers: Our trains do not have any charging points for bicycle batteries. The power sockets in the carriage are suitable for small devices only. You should therefore ensure your bicycle’s batteries are fully charged before the journey!

Taking your bicycle along on regional trains

For local transport (regional train, regional express and S-Bahn), we will be glad to take your bicycle along if enough free spaces are available. On these trains, it is not possible to reserve a space for your bicycle.

Small groups may also benefit from the Einfach-Raus bicycle ticket.

Taking your bicycle along on long-distance trains

On long-distance trains (Railjet, Intercity, Eurocity, Express train as well as Nightjet), you need to reserve a space for your bicycle. Reservations at the ÖBB ticket shop or via the ÖBB App cost € 3.-. At the ÖBB customer service at +43 (0)5 1717 and at the ÖBB ticket counters, you pay € 3.50 for this.

Please note

Bicycles exceeding our standard dimensions (length over 185 cm, height over 110 cm, width over 60 cm, tire size from 29 inches) or tandems, recumbent bikes, and bicycle trailers can only be transported in special luggage compartments. For these, online reservations and reservations via the ÖBB App are not possible.

Hints for your departure

  • To make travelling by train and bike a pleasure from the outset, we recommend arriving on the platform 5 to 10 minutes before departure.
  • Your reservation confirmation (for long-distance trains) shows which carriage your reserved bicycle space is located in. Please refer to the carriage indicator (information board) on the platform in advance to find out which sector the bicycle carriage will stop in.
  • Before the train arrives, please remove all items of luggage (e.g. panniers) from your bicycle. Boarding and loading can then take place without a rush.
  • If your bicycle is very dirty, please clean it before boarding.
  • You are personally responsible for loading your bicycle. When boarding and alighting, please ensure that you do not damage the train or your bicycle.
  • In order for your bicycle to be stowed securely for the train journey, most long-distance trains are fitted with bicycle hooks. Local trains have designated areas with straps for securing your bicycle safely.
