Bringing a bike
We carry bicycles free of charge and allow them on services where there is enough space for them to be transported safely
You're welcome to bring your bike on the Gatwick Express. Fully folding bikes are welcome at any time, but at busier times we can't carry non-folding bikes.
If you're bringing a folding bike on a peak time service, please fold it before you come through the ticket gates.
Peak time services - when non-folding bikes can't be carried - are those trains:
- Due to arrive at London Victoria between 07:00 and 10:00 Monday to Friday
- Due to leave London Victoria between 16:00 and 19:00 Monday to Friday
On weekends and bank holidays bikes are welcome on all trains at any time.
If your bike is in a space designated for wheelchairs, you must remove it if a passenger using a wheelchair needs it.
For safety reasons, please don't lock your bike to any part of the train or leave it unattended.
If your bike would obstruct other passengers when they're boarding, alighting or standing, we may need to ask you to remove it - or not to bring it on board - even at times when bikes are normally allowed.
If a member if train or station staff asks you to remove your bike from the train, you must do so.
If we can't let you bring your bike on board, out staff will help you find another train.
On rail replacement bus services
Rail replacement buses can't carry non-folding bikes safely, so we can only carry folding bikes on these services. Please check for any engineering works before you travel.
