Cycling and Public Transport

With our fellow campaigners around the country, we are asking Iarnrod Eireann to allow carriage of bikes on trains, including DART and commuter trains. We discuss bike and bus road sharing with Bus Eireann.

When can I bring my bike on the train?

Bicycles may be carried for free on Commuter and DART services at the following times:

  • 10:00 to 15:30 and after 19:00 Monday to Friday
  • all day Saturday and Sunday

Most InterCity trains have bicycles carriage facilities. The cost is €6 one way, €12 return per bike if you book online. Charges vary by distance if you pay at the station. The number of bicycle spaces is limited on each train so booking is advised when you are booking your seat.

Cycling and Public Transport

For many people with long commuting distances integrating cycling with public transport is important. This means providing secure bicycle parking at train and bus stations, allowing bicycles to be carried on public transport and installing public bike stations at appropriate locations.

For many years the cycling campaign has lobbied for proper provision for bicycles on trains and while there have been some improvements, we still have a long way to go before cyclists can be sure of being able to carry their bicycle on a train.

Support 30 km/h Campaign


On 31st January 2010 Dublin City introduced new byelaws which extended the number of streets in the city with a 30 km/h speed limit to the inner core of the city. This small sensible change has been received a hysterical reaction from the motoring lobby and certain city councillors. As there are no genuine arguements against the 30 km/h zone Dublin Cycling Campaign are opposing calls to remove it.

With your help we can make Dublin an attractive city for all.
