Bicycles, scooters and co
We are happy to take your bike with us ...
... just not before school starts, because it gets tight in our vehicles! However, you are welcome to take your bike with you on our buses and trams all day Monday to Friday on school days from 9 a.m. until closing time and on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays as well as during the school holidays. If the space provided in our vehicles is not available, the next bus or tram will definitely take you. In individual cases, our drivers decide whether to take your bike with you, because our on-site employees are responsible for the safety in the vehicle - including yours!
In order to take bicycles with you throughout the VRR, a FahrradTicket must be purchased from 01.01.2021 in connection with the regular ticket per bike. The FahrradTicket is valid for 24 hours after it has been validated.
Do you go there and back on the same day? Then the FahrradTagesTicket NRW is the right one for you. It is valid per bike and day in combination with any other ticket of the NRW tariff as well as with the bar tickets and time tickets of the VRR.
For holders of a Ticket2000, Ticket2000 9 a.m., BärenTicket, FirmenTicket, YoungTicketPLUS and SemesterTicket, a bicycle is free of charge in the selected area of application.

The taking of folded folding bikes is possible without an additional ticket. However, if the folding bikes are fully unfolded - i.e. ready to drive - taken with them, the transport rules for bicycles apply.

With the newly approved electric scooters, the way to the stop or from the stop to the destination can be comfortably covered. Is the scooter folded up, it can be taken free of charge on buses and trams, provided that the load permits safe transport.
Larger and non-collapsible e-scooters that have "bicycle-like dimensions" are not covered by this regulation. The same conditions of carriage apply here as for bicycles. This means that holders of a Ticket2000, BärenTicket, SemesterTicket or YoungTicket can take the scooter with them for free in the respective area of validity, all other passengers need an additional ticket per journey and person.
Segways are, however, excluded from transport.
