You can bring a conventional two-wheeled bicycle and electric bicycle free of charge and subject to availability. You can take a bicycle on the blue regional buses that have bicycle racks. The bicycle must be of normal size, must not have any extensions and it must not weigh more than 25 kg.
The bike is attached to the back of the bus. There is room for a maximum of 2 bicycles per regional bus and it is first come, first served. You bring a bicycle at your own risk.
The new regional buses, white with a blue wave on them, do not have the opportunity to bring bicycles.
You can take your electric scooter with you on all our buses, but there are things you need to keep in mind:
- The electric scooter may be a maximum of 120 centimeters in the folded position
- You must be able to handle it yourself when boarding and disembarking
- The electric scooter may be placed on the floor in front of you, but not so that it protrudes into the aisle
- If you sit at the back, you can also put the electric scooter on the floor behind your feet.
The electric scooter must not lie loosely on the floor, or protrude from the place where you are sitting. For your own safety, you must not stand on the electric scooter when the bus is in motion.
