Fold up bikes are great for bus and train. Wisely choose a good quality one that is not too pricey.
Get your tyres pumped up solid and go for a ride down and a hill and along flat which is more pleasant than up hill, fold your bike and get the bus back up the hill.
Proverbs 3:17 ESV
“Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.”
Always bring a puncture repair kit and a spare inner tube if you are able to mend punctures. Pay for slime to be put in your tyres at a bike shop if you cannot repair punctures. It seals the puncture holes as you go along as the air from the hole binds the slime. Slime binding 😋
Helmet, lights and high visibility jacket too obviously.
The law states that it is up to the bus driver’s discretion if you can bring the fold up bike onto the bus or not. Basicaly, if you spend about £150 first hand on a fold up bike or get a second hand one that was worth that much, then you will get one that can be compact enough e.g. pedals that fold inward.
I had an old banger of a fold up bike that I got in a charity shop. One grumpy bus driver said no and I chatted to another bus driver about the youth of today after he let me on. Ah, when I was a lad we had downhill contests on our penny farthings 😋
