To benefit from free travel for your folding bike, you will need to ensure the following guidelines are met:

  • The bike must be folded and carried in a bag prior to boarding.
  • The folding bike (in its bag) must not exceed the following size limit:
    79cm length x 59cm height x 36 cm width.
  • The folding bike must not obstruct passageways or doorways and not inconvenience other passengers.

Please note that this concession only applies to CityRail train services. It excludes:

  • Customer with their folding bike in a bagCityRail bus services (in both directions):

    • Loop Line Bowral to Picton
    • Wollongong to Moss Vale & Bundanoon
    • Bathurst to Lithgow
  • Replacement bus services during trackwork
  • NightRide buses

If travelling with another size of bike at peak times (6.00am to 9.00am and 3.30pm to 7.30pm on weekdays), you will need to purchase a child's ticket for the bike in addition to your own ticket.

At all other times and at weekends, no extra ticket is required.
