Transportation of bicycles
Within the framework of the IDS JMK, you can travel with a bicycle all year round on integrated trains and in Brno (zones 100 + 101) on Brno public transport lines marked 1 to 99. In addition, during the tourist season from April to October, cycle buses are introduced - buses on regular lines are supplemented with trailers or bicycle racks.
In the vehicles operated by Dopravní podnik města Brna in zones 100 + 101 e-bikes and e-scooters are not allowed.
On the train
It is possible to transport bicycles, e-bikes and large scooters all year round, only on those that are included in the JMK IDS (passenger trains, express trains and fast trains), but only as oversized luggage.
If you are transporting an e-bike, we recommend travelling with at least two people to fit the e-bike comfortably on the train. Remember that an e-bike weighs over 20 kg. Trains marked with the bicycle symbol 🚲️ in the timetables offer extended seating capacity for bicycles. These are the majority of IDS JMK trains, especially on the lines | S | from/to Brno and on lines | R |.

Bicycle spaces are marked with a bicycle symbol 🚲️ on the cabinet of the car. Bicycles are transported until the capacity of available seats is exhausted. If the train is equipped with a space for hanging or placing bicycles, the passenger is obliged to place the bicycle in this space in priority.
