Travelling by train
Transporting bicycles as oversized luggage is permitted on trains marked in the timetable with the “bicycle” symbol. These trains contain carriages with special spaces for transporting bicycles. These train carriages are marked with the same symbol. It is your responsibility to oversee your bike during the ride.
Transport of bikes is also allowed on regional (Os), regional fast (Sp), fast (R) in the entry areas of the first and last doors of the train, where a maximum of two bicycles may be transported at the same time, unless this is excluded for technological or safety reasons.
In all cases, however, the transport of bicycles as oversized luggage is possible only until the capacity of spaces on the train has been exhausted, and the final decision on whether it is or is not possible to accept another bicycle for transport (and where) is at the sole discretion of the conductor of the train in question.
Under no circumstances can bicycles be transported on trains which are marked in the timetable with the symbol of a crossed-out bicycle.
Tandem and multiple-seat bicycles may not be transported as oversized luggage.
Transporting bicycles using the luggage storage during transport service
The luggage storage during transport service is provided on ČD trains marked in the timetable with the symbol of a suitcase (or the symbol of a suitcase in a circle or frame). The suitcase symbol can also be found on the service carriage or compartment where bicycles or other items can be stored in this manner.
