Bring your bike on the bus

Transport your bike from A to B with FlixBus

Want to go on a bike tour in the black forest, along the Seine, or simply roll through the streets of Amsterdam? The number of spots is endless – and the best thing about it – there is a FlixBus that takes you to all these places.

Can I take my bike on the bus? 

Yes, you can! Bikes are allowed on most FlixBuses, so you can experience great adventures wherever you want. Many buses in our fleet have a bike carrier at the back of the bus that allows you to transport your bike or are equipped with special bike covers, which ensure a safe transport in the baggage compartment of the bus.

When adding a bike in the booking process, all reservable trips will be carried out by a bus equipped with a bike carrier or with bike covers. For some search results, there might be the notification “This ride is fully booked”. This either means there are no seats left, or the bus is not equipped with a bike carrier or with bike covers. If the trip is reservable when setting the number of bikes to zero, this means the bus is indeed not equipped to transport bikes.

But don’t worry, you can still book this trip for you and your folding bicycle by booking the bike as ‘special baggage’. Your bike will then be transported in the baggage compartment. Please keep in mind the special regulations for bikes as special baggage below.
