Your bicycle and public transport
On the train
You can take your bicycle on Sydney metro or Intercity trains at any time, free of charge.
If you take your bicycle on the train, your bicycle must not block any doors or passageways.
If you are travelling on regional trains, you can take your bike with you. However, your bike will be classified as luggage and will need to be booked in advance.
On the bus
Bicycles are generally not allowed on Sydney buses. This is due to safety concerns regarding stowage of bicycles on buses. You may be allowed to take a folded bike on board.
If you are travelling on regional buses, you can take your bike with you. However, your bike will be classified as luggage and will need to be booked in advance.
On a ferry
You can take your bicycle on the ferry at no extra cost, although this may depend on whether there is enough room for your bicycle to travel with you.
Some private ferry operators might charge you a fee to bring your bicycle onboard. It is best to check before traveling.
On light rail
You can take your bicycle on light rail free of charge at any time. However, during busy periods, you may be prevented by Light Rail staff from bringing you bicycle onboard if space is an issue.
Bicycle sheds and lockers
Bike sheds are available at 25 stations across the Sydney Trains network. They provide storage for bikes out of the weather. You can access these sheds using an Opal Card (but you have to link your Opal card online first).
Secure bike lockers are available for hire at more than 130 locations across the NSW public transport network. A refundable key deposit of $50 allows you to rent a bike locker for up to 3 months. Rental periods of up to 12 months are available.
