Bicycles & accessibility

Transport made easy for cyclists, families,...

The Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme was born out of  the idea of preserving the memory and the operation of the 'Réseau des Bains de Mer', which dates from 1887.

The railway was conceived to increase the limited mobility of the people of the Baie. A genuinely public form of transport in its time, the Réseau always safeguarded this spirit of service for all.

Thanks to its local communities, the Baie de Somme is a region well provided with cycle paths. The 'Réseau des Bains de Mer' complements this gentle mode of transport which respects the environment.

That's why the CFBS carries bicycles free of charge in all its trains, for cyclists who hold a valid ticket. Bicycles are carried in a van at one end of the train.

If the van is closed, ask the guard to open it. To avoid making trains late, please be aware of times of departure, buy your ticket at least 30 minutes before the train is due to leave, and bring your bicycle  no later than 10 minutes before departure. Thank you in advance!

The Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme also carries tandems, so long as there is room!
For more information on cycle routes in the Baie de Somme, visit the site of the Syndicat Mixte Baie de Somme Grand Littoral Picard and the “Plan Vélo”, or go to the site of the Baiecyclette, partners of the CFBS.

The van is also available for carrying push chairs, rather than blocking the balconies of the coaches and to allow passengers and the guard to move more easily through the train.

Accessibility for all, one of the Association's objectives

People with limited mobility can travel on the Réseau des Bains de Mer, subject to certain conditions.
This historic railway, its buildings and its rolling stock, date from a time when there was less consideration for people with disabilities.

The CFBS has tried hard to improve the accessibility of some carriages and some buildings. The carriages recently acquired from Switzerland are the best so far as accessibility is concerned. To allow you to fully appreciate the charms of the journey, and to be aware of possible problems of accessibility, we ask you to contact us before your visit, and we will reply promptly.

The main problem concerns the height of the steps for entering the carriages. If you contact us in advance, our staff will advise you of an easier way to get on board.

As of now, only electric wheelchairs are impossible to carry, because of their weight and the height of the rolling stock. At the same time, only a little mobility is needed to get onto the coaches.
The provision in this web site of maximum accessibility for the partially sighted is one result of the efforts of the Association to cater equally for everybody's needs.
