For customers connecting with a Queensland Rail RailBus Coach Connection, special arrangements may be required to ensure bicycles may be accepted on the coach, so please advise your consultant at the time of booking.

A limit of one (1) bicycle per Customer can be booked. Bicycles are not counted towards the customer’s luggage allowance.

Bicycles spaces must be pre-booked and are charged at $15.00 per item per sector, payable at the time of ticketing. At attended stations where check in facilities are available, customers must arrive in time to allow for the presentation/ disassembly (if required) of the bicycle to Queensland Rail staff prior to the closing time of check in facilities 30 minutes before departure.

Bicycles can be presented by the Customer either:

Without a bicycle box or bag

The handle bars must be turned and tightened into place parallel to the bicycle frame to reduce the width of the bicycle. The pedals must be removed to further reduce the size and decrease the risk of a trip hazard. It is the responsibility of the Customer to supply their own tools to disassemble their bicycle prior to Queensland Rail staff accepting it. Any saddle bags or baskets are to be removed.

Contained in a bicycle box or bag designed to protect the bicycle

The bicycle (including protective containers) needs to be less than 20 kg in weight to be accepted by Queensland Rail staff. If it is over 20 kg, then the bicycle cannot be accepted.

Surfboards:

Surfboards in a protective cover up to a maximum length of 200 cm are accepted on all services with a separate luggage car attached. This also applies to Boogie Boards due to limited space.
