Things to Remember When Traveling With a Bicycle

At NJ TRANSIT, we encourage the use of bicycles on our system. If you're planning to travel with your bike, here are some helpful things to remember.

  • Collapsible bikes are permitted on all trains at all times.
  • Standard-frame bicycles are available on many trains, but not all trains, particularly during rush hour when ridership is heaviest. Check schedules for further information.
  • Bicycles are permitted at all times on buses with bike racks or with underfloor luggage compartments.
  • Bicycles can be carried aboard River LINE trains at all times and Newark Light Rail and Hudson-Bergen Light Rail trains at select times. Check schedules for further information.
  • If an NJ TRANSIT employee or contract employee considers the bicycle a safety hazard, the employee may not allow the bicycle onboard the vehicle.
  • At rail stations, use stairways, ramps or elevators to gain access to station platforms with your bicycle. Do not use escalators and walk bicycles when passing through stations.
  • As a reminder, hoverboards are not permitted on any trains, buses, or light rail or Access Link vehicles, or at NJ TRANSIT stations and outlying property.
