Train and Ride

has anyone had any luck with taking a bike with you on regional trains? From the information I found online, yes you can - but it is checked luggage and you need to box it up + it adds an extra $12.10 to the fare.

Thinking this could be a good way to quickly cover more ground by training it out to a destination from Canberra to Sydney and riding back.

Yep, it’s a pain in the arse to get out of Canberra.

No one ever leaves.

Simpsons did it.

There’s a $1000 leaving town tax

Yep, its gotta be in a taped up box and you’re supposed to get there early to secure a spot in the luggage area. Super shit.

Lame. Not even Vline is that bad

Just another thing that sucks about NSW

Can get away with it from Goulburn but not leaving Canberra

Write to the minister!! (Though I got a pretty half arsed ignorant reply)

Someone (not me obvs) should compile every forum thread about shitty NSW bike/rail policies and send it to the minister.
