Bicycle on the train
You need a Bicycle day ticket for € 6.20 to bring your bicycle / recumbent / road bike or tandem with you onto the train, parking it in the designated area. The following rules apply:
- You are permitted to take your bicycle with you onto the train from Monday-Friday between 9.00-16.00 and after 18.30. This means you are not permitted to bring your bicycle during rush hour due to the limited space available. This rule also applies if you checked in before rush hour, but are traveling during rush hour.
- During weekends and during the months of July and August you can bring your bicycle onto the train the entire day. In July and August you can even do so during rush hours.
- You can bring your bicycle onto domestic NS trains and the Intercity direct.
- You can bring your bike onto the domestic part of the route of the IC Berlijn, when travelling outside rush hours. You don't need a reservation. Howver, you can not bring your bike onto the domestic route in July and August. You need a reservation and an international bike ticket.
- Make sure to remove any luggage (bike bags, etc.), to make as much room for other bicycles as possible!
- Folding bicycles can be brought onto the train for free, as long as they remain folded, even during rush hour.
- There must be enough space available in the train to park your bike properly. It can be very busy in the train, especially during the summer, so it is possible that there will not be enough space on the train for all bicycles.
