More and more cyclists are travelling by rail. SBB is catering to this trend in its new double-decker trains where more carriages are available for bicycle storage. This allows even first-class. passengers to store their bike near their seat. SBB will also operate a direct train on the Gotthard panorama route to Ticino between April and October. At weekends and holidays, the ‘Gotthard Weekender’ will run directly from Zurich to Bellinzona via the Gotthard panorama route, offering a comfortable means of transport for cyclists and hikers – and back again, of course.
