To ask the Minister for Regional Development how many bicycles were carried on trains, in each of the last five years.

There is no ticket issued separately for bicycles carried, therefore Translink has no data on the number of bicycles carried on trains in each of the last five years.
Translink do, however, monitor utilization of cycle parking spaces at rail stations. Translink’s intention is to expand cycle storage capacity where utilization rates justify this.
