General conditions

Every transport company establishes their own rules regarding the transport of bicycles. The transport of bicycles on some bus lines is not allowed ; in certain cases the offer is limited to certain periods of time or a previous reservation must be made. We therefore advise to check beforehand the possibility of the bicycle transport on the desired route.


For the travel with a bicycle within the area of the Fare Community Arcobaleno applies the reduced fare for bicycles (fare TIA 651.17). Only the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB/TILO) and PostBus (PAG) also accept the national tickets for the transport of bicycles (Velopass and 1-day travelcards). All details can be found in the fare T601.

In addition

  • • Please pay attention to the symbol on the side; it is shown on the official timetables of certain bus lines or as legend for single journeys

  • Bicycles must be loaded and unloaded from the vehicle independently.
  • For bus rides, the final decision for the bicycle transport lies with the bus driver
  • Further information in regards to the bicycle transport within the CTA can be found in the fare TIA 651.17
