South Tyrol by bike & train

For athletic and eco-friendly vacationers in South Tyrol, the combination of bike and train is particularly attractive. A large part of the trains in South Tyrol can transport bikes in specifically designed compartments and train areas. A comfortable alternative is travelling by train without bikes, in combination with renting bikes at one of the numerous rental spots next to the train stations – possible with the bikemobil Card.

During the last years, a lot was done in South Tyrol to facilitate bike transport – especially on trains. Railway stations were modernised and the region was equipped with low-floor trains. Basically, the transport of bikes in regional trains of the local public transport in South Tyrol (to Trient) is allowed with the appropriate ticket. The transport of folded bikes, children’s bikes under 20 inches, handbikes/recumbents and bicycle trailers is even free of charge.

For southbound train journeys beyond Trient, interregional bike tickets from Trenitalia must be purchased. For journeys in the direction of North or East Tyrol, separate tickets are available from ÖBB or VVT for the relevant section (e.g. Brenner - Innsbruck). Bicycles are not allowed on the narrow-gauge railway in Ritten.

Bike transport not always possible on regional trains

In the case of many travelling bikers on the platforms and in the trains, there is, however, no guarantee that all travellers can access the trains with their bikes – despite valid tickets. In order to avoid such situations, there is a truck shuttle service along Vinschgau railway line at certain hours. More information is available in our article about tips for cyclists in Vinschgau.

Bike transport often not possible on regional buses

Bicycles are not allowed on city buses. Also, on many modern buses with low-floor entrance, it is not possible to take bicycles due to the lack of storage space. On few routes, some buses are equipped with bicycle racks that offer space for 5 to 6 bikes. In the timetables, those journeys are marked with an "A". However, on these buses, due to time constraints, bicycles cannot be loaded at all stops and e-bikes are not carried. The stops where bicycles can be loaded onto the buses are marked in the timetable with the bicycle symbol.

Separate bike racks are available on some buses on the following routes (from spring/summer to autumn):

  • Line 273 Mals – Martina
  • Line 245 Meran – Lana – Ulten
  • Linie 184 Weissenstein – Karerpass / Jochgrimm – Bozen
  • Line 321 Brixen – St. Andrä – Plose
  • Line 445 Toblach – Cortina

Rental bike as an alternative

South Tyrol offers a broad range of bike rentals – mainly but not exclusively along the railway lines. If you would like to combine train and bike excursions, the bikemobil Card may be a good option. With this ticket, you can rent a bike for one day too, available at the countless rental spots of Papin Sport, Südtirol Rad oder Südtirolbike.

The rental bike can be returned to a random rental spot of the corresponding organisation in South Tyrol without any additional fee. This means that bikes taken at Südtirol Rad can exclusively be returned to Südtirol Rad. Please note: The bikemobil Card does not entail transporting the rental bike on the means of public transport.
