At the Zobor station, there will be two connecting trains to Bratislava in both directions that can transport bikes. This train will commute three times per day and travellers can use a Bratislava integrated transport travel card.

“The Záhoráčik train transported almost 8,000 people last year,” said chair of Bratislava self-governing region Juraj Droba, as quoted by TASR. “The seasonal train line is used mostly by cyclists, tourists and families with children.”
