Bikes on trains and buses

Train + Cycle

There are a few rules around taking your bicycle on a train in Kent, so let us help.

  • You may take your bike on any Southeastern train, unless the train arrives or departs London during peak hours.
  • There are less restrictions around folding bikes.  On Southeastern you may take these on any train. On Eurostar train you may take folding bikes on any train but you may be required to cover your bike and store in the luggage rack.

The National Rail Cycling by train leaflet provides more guidance and if you’re still not sure we recommend checking Eurostar and Southeastern’s Bike Policy before travelling.

Cycle Storage

Many stations have lockable cycle racks or lockers. Check the Southeastern station information to see what facilities are available at your station.

 

Bus

With National Express, you are able to bring your bike along if it’s folding or carried in an appropriate padded bag.

Generally though, bikes are not allowed on buses.
