Train and Ride

#1

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, 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.

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