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 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 Translink service.
Kick scooters can be taken on-board any Translink 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.
Bikes and e-scooters are allowed in the first and last carriages only, with a maximum of two bikes or e-scooters per carriage, or as space allows.
CityCat and ferry
Bikes, scooters (including electric scooters) and other personal mobility and electric devices (PMDs) are permitted on CityCat and ferry services subject to space availability and the Master of the Vessel’s discretion. Riders should take extra care to avoid inconvenience to other passengers.
When travelling please remember:
- Walk bikes and PMDs (other than motorised mobility aids for the people with disabilities) over the gangplank.
- To ensure everyone’s safety, bikes and PMDs must not block aisles or use allocated priority spacing reserved for mobility impaired customers.
- Devices must meet the Commonwealth government’s Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport 2002 (Transport Standards) in terms of dimensions, weight, and manoeuvrability.
Bus and tram
Bikes and electric scooters are not permitted on bus or tram services.
Bike facilities offer greater flexibility as you can cycle or scooter to a station and securely park your bike/scooter 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.
