Transport Exclusions

Please note that the following transport exclusions apply:

  • Rail services from the international and domestic airport stations are now free, but you must purchase a Gate Pass at these stations. No free event travel concessions will be granted where your event rider number is not clearly displayed on the bicycle. Therefore, entries on the day will not be permitted to free transport going to the start of the event.
  • Light rail services are not included in your free travel. You will need to tap on using your Opal card.

 Planned trackwork

Weekend trackwork will take place on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 October, with buses replacing trains on the:

  • T2 South Line between Cabramatta and Granville
  • T4 Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra Line between Bondi Junction and Central

Bicycles are permitted on Sydney Trains and NSW TrainLink trackwork replacement buses only at the discretion of the driver.

For your safety

It is essential that you follow all instructions given by Transport for NSW staff and the SPRING CYCLE event volunteers.

Bicycles are not permitted to obstruct or create a safety issue, particularly near any entrance or exit points at the station/wharf. Regular train services have limited bicycle carrying capacity therefore dedicated Sydney Trains and NSW TrainLink intercity services are provided especially for the 2015 SPRING CYCLE. Station announcements will advise of these services.

Sydney Ferries have a limited carrying capacity and bicycles will only be permitted at the discretion of the crew. You must secure your bicycle in the designated area or follow the direction of the crew.

You can take your bicycle on light rail free of charge at any time, but staff may restrict the number of bicycles or refuse access when carriages are crowded.

Bicycles are not permitted on Sydney Buses services.

Transport for NSW thanks you for your co-operation. Enjoy your ride!
