Active transport benefits

  • Health: It's a convenient and practical way to incorporate regular exercise into your day.
  • Environment: Bike-riding, scooting or walking to your stop or station helps to reduce your carbon footprint.
  • Economic: The cost of buying and maintaining a bicycle is around 1% of the cost of buying and maintaining a car.
  • Social: It provides an opportunity to socialise with people in your local community.
  • Transport: Bike-riding provides customers with economical and efficient access to public transport services. On average, 10 times more households are within riding distance of public transport than they are within walking distance.

Travelling with a bike or scooter

There are a number of rules around travelling with bikes and scooters on our network, depending upon which type of public transport you are using.

Folding bikes and kick scooters

If your folding bike can be carried in a bag no bigger than 90cm x 70cm x 36cm, you can travel on any service.

Kick scooters can be taken on-board any service. If you're travelling by bus, fold your kick scooter down (where possible) and store it in the luggage racks. Please take care to not block the aisle or doors.

Making it easier to include active transport options in your journey, you can travel with your bike or personal e-scooter onboard trains at any time.

When travelling with a bike or e-scooter during peak times, you need to:

  • board using the first or last carriages of six-car trains only
  • ensure only two people with bikes or e-scooters are in the first or last carriage at any time, or wait for another train
  • keep clear of access to priority seating
  • keep your bike or e-scooter clear of aisles and doorways
  • stay with your bike or e-scooter at all times.

If there is not enough space available, you may be asked to catch another service. Please follow the direction of staff.

Note:Bikes and personal mobility devices, including e-scooters, are not permitted on railbuses.

Bikes, scooters (including e-scooters) and other personal mobility devices are permitted on CityCat and ferry services subject to space availability and staff discretion. Please take extra care to avoid inconvenience to other passengers.

When travelling please remember:

Bikes and personal mobility devices, including e-scooters, are not permitted on bus or tram services.

Bike and scooter facilities

Bike facilities offer greater flexibility as you can ride or scoot to a station and securely park your bike/scooter before continuing your journey on public transport.

We offer a number of bike racks and facilities for public use at bus stations and park 'n' rides.

Queensland Rail, Brisbane City Council and the City of Gold Coast also offer a number of bicycle storage facilities across our network.
