Bikes on Transperth services*

Transperth welcomes bicycles on our trains and ferries because we recognise the contribution cyclists make towards a cleaner and healthier community and environment.

To plan your cycle route or to access maps of cycle and Principal Shared Paths, please visit the Department of Transport's website by clicking here.

Please refer to the guidelines below for travelling with your bike on Transperth services.

Bikes on trains

Walking and cycling provide many benefits for the community and the environment, as well as your health and wellbeing. They’re a great way to de-stress after a long day or to plan your day ahead. Walking or cycling to the Station just a few times a week will save you the hassle of finding a parking spot, save on petrol costs as well as helping your fitness levels and overall wellbeing.

If you don’t need your bike at the end of your train journey, why take it with you? Transperth provides bike hubs, free lockers or u-rails for you to conveniently and safely park your bike at all stations. To view the bike facilities and locations at your station, click here. Bike lockers at train stations are constructed to Australian Roads part 14 design guidelines.

So, with a few simple rules, travelling the trains with your bike is easy.

  1. Bikes are not permitted on Transperth train services during peak periods (Weekdays only) due to capacity constraints. Peak periods are as follows:
    • Morning peak services between 7.00am and 9.00am (Weekdays only)

    • Afternoon peak services between 4.30pm and 6.30pm (Weekdays only)

    Bikes are not permitted on train services travelling away from Perth city between the hours of 4.30pm and 6.30pm. Please note further restrictions regarding Perth, Perth Underground and Esplanade Stations as per point two below.

  2. Bikes cannot depart or pass through Perth, Perth Underground or Esplanade Stations in any direction during the above peak periods.

    Bikes are not permitted to enter Perth, Perth Underground or Esplanade stations during the peak periods.

    If you wish to travel from Perth, Perth Underground or Esplanade stations with your bike during the morning peak, you will need to ride to City West, Canning Bridge, Leederville or McIver stations and board from there.  As above, during the morning peak, bikes are only permitted on board services travelling away from the city.

    Should you wish to travel to Perth, Perth Underground or Esplanade stations with your bike during the afternoon peak, you will need to disembark at City West, Canning Bridge, Leederville or McIver stations and continue your journey by bike.  As above, during the afternoon peak, bikes are only permitted on board services travelling towards the city.

  3. Fold-up bicycles and unicycles are permitted on Transperth train services under the following guidelines

    Passengers with fold up bicycles with small wheels are permitted to travel on Transperth trains at any time as long as the bicycles are contained within a carry bag exceeding no more than 86cm long x 68cm high x 36cm wide. Fold up bicycles must be kept out of the aisle. Chainless unicycles are accepted on all Transperth services, space permitting. Chainless unicycles must be kept out of the aisle and not take up a seat that another passenger may use.

  4. Onboard etiquette

    Your bike is your responsibility at all times. If a train carriage appears full, please try another one rather than force your way in. Do not block entrances with your bike or leave it unattended where it can fall or be knocked over. Priority areas are provided on trains for seniors, people in wheelchairs and parents with prams. You are permitted to use these areas, but should make them available for priority passengers.

Please note: For special event services, a person with a bicycle can be asked to disembark the carriage, or be refused entry. A person who does not comply with an instruction given by an authorised person or Transit Officer can receive a penalty between $200 and $2,000.

Power-assisted bicycles

Power-assisted bicycles are permitted on trains subject to the same time restrictions as standard bicycles so long as they are primarily “pedal powered” with a small contained electric auxiliary motor and that the bicycle should be similar in size, weight and appearance as a standard bicycle.
