Take your bike on the train

When travelling by train, you can also take your bicycle with you. Trains which carry accompanied bicycles are marked accordingly in train timetables both home and abroad. The number of bicycles the train is able to carry depends on train type and occupancy.

Certain provisions apply when combining bike and train:

  • Passengers must travel with the same train as their bicycle.
  • Passengers may transport only one bicycle.
  • Passengers load the bicycle by themselves, keep an eye on the bicycle during transport and unload the bicycle at the final destination.

Across Slovenia

Fares

To take your bicycle with you on the train, you need to pay a flat-rate charge of €1.50 (€3.00 for an electric bike), irrespective of the distance travelled. A bicycle ticket together with a valid rail ticket is valid for one day for unlimited accompanied bicycle transport across the Slovenian rail network.
