Self-service bicycle transport

Travelling on two wheels? You can of course bring your bicycle with you on public transport. For this, an additional ticket is required.

You need to purchase an additional regular 2nd class ZVV ticket or an SBB day pass. The most cost effective way to travel locally with a bicycle is to buy a 2nd class ZVV ticket. For longer distances, it's worth buying an SBB day pass.

Bicycle transport

Please load and unload your bicycle yourself. Note that for space reasons, some companies do not carry bicycles or only do so outside of peak times (6-8am and 4-7pm). For more information, please click here.
