Bikes can be carried free of charge on trains during off peak periods. During the peak, there is no charge for bike carriage, but spaces are limited. Folding bikes can be carried on trains and buses. Again, during the peak commuter period, spaces may be limited. Bike parking is available at many railway stations.

Access to parking or lockers at your local railway station
