Taking your bike with you.

Leaving your bicycle at a stop

If you can’t ‘park’ your bike in a bicycle parking facility, please make sure you don’t cause any obstruction to pedestrians or buildings. So, for example, please don’t leave your bike in any walkways at underground stations or locked to a bus stop pole. If you cause an obstruction, your bike may be removed by BVG personnel.

Travelling with your bicycle on the BVG

Bicycles and electrically powered bicycles (pedelecs) can be taken on underground, trams, and ferries around the clock. If space is available, they can also be taken on bus routes N1 to N9.

Please note when travelling with a bike

To avoid obstructing other passengers and prevent delays, please observe some rules when taking bicycles on public transport:

  • Only board trains and trams at doors with a bicycle symbol. A maximum of two bicycles are permitted at the designated points displaying a bicycle symbol in each carriage – provided there is sufficient space. 
  • Please position your bicycle in a way that does not cause any obstruction or endangers the safety of other passengers. You must therefore hold on to your bike for the duration of the journey.
  • Prams/buggies and wheelchairs always have priority, which means that if the space occupied by a bicycle is needed for wheelchairs or prams/buggies, you may have to get off with your bike.
  • By the way: there is no entitlement to carriage of a bicycle or to the joint carriage of a group’s bicycles. Operating personnel are ultimately responsible for deciding whether bicycles may or may not be taken along.
