Since 2010, the train network in Denmark (S-Train) allows cyclists to bring their bikes on the train, for free. Now this would probably be considered insane this side of the world, but the idea is a “a growing success”, and they’re trying to make it even better. S-Train is remodeling 10 trains to accommodate twice as many bikes.
