Cycles

Das passende Ticket für das Rad - die Fahrradtageskarte

If you wish to take your cycle, cycle trailer or dog on bus & rail, just buy a cycle day ticket. The price is based on the tariff zones in which you intend to travel:

  • For a journey in one tariff zone, use the cycle day ticket
    at price level 1 costing 2 Euro.
  • For a journey in two or more tariff zones, use the
    cycle day ticket for the entire VVO area, costing 3 Euro.

The cycle day ticket is valid up to 4am on the day following the day of stamping.

Please be aware that the number of bicycles that can be accepted is limited to the number which can be carried without endangering or inconveniencing other passengers.

Bicycles can be taken on S-Bahns, trams and buses in the marked carriages.

In individual cases, vehicle staff have discretion over whether cycles can be carried.

Please note that passengers with prams and wheelchair users always have priority over cyclists.

Details on taking bicycles, items and animals with you can be found in the "small print".

Cycle day ticket prices and validity

The cycle day ticket is valid up to 4am on the day following the day of stamping.

If you use the cycle day ticket in combination with the night ticket (valid from 6pm to 6am on the following day), it is valid until 6am.

Cycle included: Tip for monthly ticket holders and subscription monthly ticket holders

As the holder of a monthly or annual pass, you can bring your cycle on board free of charge within the tariff zone and time limits of your monthly or annual pass.

Is there a guarantee that my cycle will be accepted on board?

Cycles are only permitted to a limited degree on trains, buses, trams, ferries and the special tourist services. Prams and wheelchairs will always be given priority.

The number of cycles that can be accepted is limited to the number which can be carried without endangering or inconveniencing other passengers. In individual cases, vehicle staff have discretion over whether cycles can be carried.

Cycles with a combustion engine and unconventional designs (e.g. load carriers) are not permitted.

Taking cycles on special tourist services

Narrow gauge railways

Taking bikes on the Radebeul–Radeburg Railway and the Weisseritz Valley Railway is no problem, because the narrow gauge trains have a luggage / bike compartment with space for 30 bikes.

Dresden Funicular Railway

A maximum of four bikes may be carried on the Funicular Railway. Please note that bikes will need to be carried up/down several steps.

Dresden Suspension Railway

The Suspension Railway has a luggage section in each compartment at the top and bottom. Each will take up to seven bicycles.

Kirnitzsch Valley Tramway

The Kirnitzsch Valley Tramway can only carry a limited number of bicycles.

Meissen city tour

Bicycles cannot be taken on the Meissen city tour shuttle buses.

Taking cycles on ferries

Taking cycles on the Elbe ferries is no problem at all. At busy periods the ferries are constantly criss-crossing the river. So if there is no room for you and your bike, you won't have to wait long.

Just sit back, cross over and cycle on the other side of the Elbe!

On the Elbe ferries under the VVO tariff the cycle day ticket can be used within its geographical and time limits. If, while you are cycling, you only wish to use the ferry, you just pay the actual ferry fare.
