Summer in the City - Public Transport Carries Cycles around the Clock

Sommerferien: Sperrzeiten beim HVV aufgehoben

Cycle transport in ferry boats, part of public transport, is very popular.

During school holidays from 8th of July to 18th of August the Hamburg Transport Association (HVV) carries bicycles in certain busses, all subways and s-trains around the clock. Usually riding with bicycles is not allowed from 6 to 9 in the morning and from 4 to 6 in the afternoon. Ferry boats in the harbour are always allowed for cycle transport, and on weekends busses, subways and s-trains are free around the clock.

In the Haseldorfer Marsch, an excellent destination for cycle tours, bus line 589 will offer cycle transport on weekends and holidays starting on 24th of July until the 23rd of October. Bus 589 connects the villages Hetlingen, Haseldorf and Haselau with Uetersen and at Wedel with rapid transit to Hamburg city. Cycles will be carried in new trailers. Up to ten cycles can be transported in one trailer. From Hamburg to Wedel the trains need only half an hour, trains and the new bus-trailers are free for cycles of course. Bus-service will be every hour from 10 p.m. to 6 p.m.
