Self-service loading of bicycles in Switzerland.
You may load empty bicycles and e-bikes on most trains operated by SBB and private railway companies as well as most postbuses if you have a valid bike ticket.
Please allow enough time for your arrival and for changing trains.
Bike space reservations will be mandatory from 21 March to 31 October on InterCity trains (ICs) marked with the bike reservation sign in the timetable, e.g. via the foot-of-the-Jura line (IC5/51) and through the Gotthard Base Tunnel (IC2/21). Further information can be found under «Reservation requirements and restrictions».
On Zurich S-Bahn trains you can only take your bike with you between 8am and 4pm and between 7pm and 6am Monday to Friday. On Saturdays and Sundays there are no restrictions.
Postbuses can only carry a limited number of bikes. On some postbus routes, you have to reserve cycle spaces in advance. Please note the information in the timetable.
