We're making it easier to include healthy active transport options, like cycling and walking, on your journey.
Active transport benefits
- Health: It's a convenient and practical way to incorporate regular exercise into your day.
- Environment: Cycling 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: Cycling provides commuters with economical and efficient access to public transport services. On average, 10 times more households are within cycling distance of public transport than they are within walking distance.
Travelling with a bike or scooter
There is a trial allowing bikes and electric scooters on all Queensland Rail services, including during peak times.
Bikes and e-scooters will be allowed in the first and last carriages only, with a maximum of two bikes or e-scooters per carriage, or as space allows.
To ensure a safe and comfortable journey for everyone, please follow these guidelines when travelling with your bike or e-scooter:
- board via the first and last doors of six car trains
- ensure priority seating areas are always easily accessible
- keep your bike clear or aisles and doorways
- follow the directions of staff.
Peak services are our busiest services and there may not always be space for bikes or e-scooters. You may be asked to catch another service if there is not enough space available.
Bikes are permitted on CityCat and CityFerry services provided there is enough space available.
You may not be able to travel on a particular service if there are other bikes already using the designated storage area or if the service is full with passengers.
Electric scooters are not permitted on CityCat or CityFerry services.
Bus and tram
Bikes and electric scooters are not permitted on bus or tram services.
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 Translink service.
Kick scooters can be taken on-board any Translink service. When travelling on a bus, scooters should be folded (where possible) and stored in the luggage racks. Care should be taken to not block the aisle or doors.
Bike facilities offer greater flexibility as you can cycle to a station and securely park your bike before continuing your journey on public transport.
Translink offers a number of bike racks and facilities for public use at bus stations and park 'n' rides.
