Bergisch Bicycle Bus

The Bergische FahrradBus (Cycling Bus) shuttles between Leverkusen-Opladen (bus station) and Marienheide along the Balkantrasse and the Bergische Panoramic Cycle Path. These cycle paths are part of a network of more than 300km of routes between the Ruhr, Rhine and Sieg rivers, most of which run along former railway lines through the north of the Rheinisch-Bergisch and Oberbergisch districts. A second service runs between Bergisch Gladbach and Burscheid (route 430). 

The Bergische FahrradBus, which is identified as such in the destination display, allows all users of the cycle paths to cover a route or part of a route in comfort by bus. 

The buses on both routes are equipped with a bicycle trailer. This has space for a total of 16 bikes, and e-bikes can also be accommodated without difficulty. Loading the trailer exclusively from the right-hand side ensures that passengers are not exposed to the dangers of moving traffic. Furthermore, up to four bicycles can be stored in the bus. 

The Bergische FahrradBuses can of course also be used by passengers without a bicycle. They offer great connections to the hiking trails of the Bergisches Wanderland, for example, so you can also use the bus to reach the start of a hike. The Bergische FahrradBus is fully accessible. Reservations are not accepted for these bus services. 

Buses run on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays between Mai and November. The 2024 season will start on May 1st and will end on October 6th. The timetable for 2024 ist the same as 2023.
