Bike parking and facilities
Park and lock your bike at bike racks, bike shelters and cyclepods at destinations around Brisbane. Cycle2City in King George Square in the city centre also provides a member-based end-of-trip facility for people riding a bike. Find out more about Council’s new bike repair stations and which public transport services you can take your bike on.
There are over 200 bike racks installed around Brisbane. You can locate bike racks by using the Cycling Brisbane bikeway map.
To help increase bike parking available in the inner city, Council has installed new ‘green heart’ bike racks at 14 locations across the CBD, South Brisbane and Milton.
Green heart bike racks provide parking for two bikes when one is locked on either side of the rack.
You can also park your bike at every Council library. Each library building has bike racks nearby.

Bike repair stations
Council is installing bike repair stations along Brisbane's bikeway network. Instead of worrying about bringing toolkits along for your ride, you can rest your bike against the fixed blue stand and use a variety of attached tools (such as screwdrivers/allen keys/levers) to make basic repairs to your bike, or to inflate a tyre.
Stations are located at:
- at the end of Victoria Street cul-de-sac in Riverside Drive Park, West End
- at the base of the Wheel of Brisbane, South Brisbane
- behind the River Quay Green lawn area, South Bank.
Bikes are permitted on some forms of public transport.
CityCats and ferries
You can take your bike on CityCats and ferries subject to the availability of space and at the Master's discretion.
You can take your bike on Brisbane trains at all times during weekends and public holidays, and at off peak times on weekdays.
From 1 July 2021, Queensland Rail is running a six-month trial of allowing bikes and e-scooters on all trains during peak times. During this time, you can take your bike or e-scooter on trains during peak times, however you must:
- travel only in the first and last carriages on six car trains (not permitted on three car trains)
- board via the first or last train door
- check for space and ensure only two bikes or e-scooters are in the first and last carriages at one time.
For more information on the trial, visit the Queensland Rail website.
Leaving your bike at public transport stations
You can leave your bike securely at many train and bus stations.
