Public transport and a bike are a marvellous combination for mobile people - and with the tips on this page you will find you can get where you want to go by bike with our services without arriving out of breath.
Please note: Of course you can only take your bike on board when there is room for it. There is no absolute right to do so.
- Please note that you must hold on to your bike during the journey for safety reasons.
- Please show consideration for other passengers and only take your bike on board when there is enough space for it without inconveniencing other people.
- Please make sure that your bike stands in the area where you get on, but does not obstruct the doors. The side you get off may change from station to station. Please hold your bike steady while the train is moving.
- Please note that you are not permitted to take your bike on board between 6 am and 9 am and 4 pm and 6 pm. This is the rush hour and the trains as well as the stations are particularly crowded at this time.
- The open area behind the driver’s cabin on the S-Bahn is only intended for wheelchair users and prams. A bike would block access in the area of the doors here. For this reason, please use the other doors.
As an alternative to taking your bike on board with you, there are bicycle racks where you can park it at almost all HVV stations. Many also have bicycle lockers. And on top of that, you can hire a StadtRad (CityBike) at more than 60 rapid transit stations to get where you want.
