Bus & Bike Lift

Mountain lift


Throughout Ötztal we have created suitable infrastructures that make it as easy (and comfortable) as possible for all mountain bikers and cyclists. Throughout the valley, our public bus lines transport bicycles for free at 15 bus stops. Also the summer mountain lifts - between Oetz, the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN and Obergurgl-Hochgurgl - take you and your bicycle up to the trails and lines quickly and in the most comfy way.


Relaxed ascent, flowing descent

Floating to the top, getting off, ready for the superb trails: Between Oetz and the rear end of the valley in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl our state-of-the-art mountain lifts take you (and your bicycle) to the mountain tops in the most uncomplicated and comfortable way. In the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN the innovative transport system on Langegg chairlift, unique in all Austria, takes you directly to the Ollweite Line. All details about transport by mountain lifts can be found here.

As the very first holiday region in Tirol, Ötztal offers free bicycle transport (for holders of a valid bus ticket) in all public bus lines. On the Imst/Haiming-Obergurgl (and return) line the public buses are equipped with special bicycle trailers. The 15 bus stops, where safe loading and unloading is possible, are marked with a special bicycle symbol. Advance reservation is recommended for larger groups.

Thanks to our Bike Shuttle Live Status you and your bicycle are not in front of locked doors for sure. Or more precisely: in front of a bus with full bicycle trailer! With the help of real time information, you can check live how many free spaces the buses bicycle trailers currently offer. How it works? Simply select the direction, define departure point and departure time and you will receive all details about the current bicycle transport capacities!

All bikers aboard!

Please note the special bicycle bus stops marked with a bicycle symbol on the "Ötztal Line" (Haiming/Imst - Obergurgl). At these selected bus stops safe loading and unloading of bicycles is guaranteed. Also e-bikes are transported on the marked buses equipped with special bicycle trailers. Important: Due to the heavy weight of e-bikes, the passengers themselves are responsible for loading and unloading their bicycles and not the bus driver. Therefore, no liability is accepted for any damage of bicycles on the part of the transport company.


Free Bicycle transport service

Please watch out for the „Ötztal Line“ (Haiming / Imst – Obergurgl) bicycle bus stops marked with the bicycle symbol. At these selected stops you can load and unload your bicycle and e-bike safely. Bicycle transport is free of charge for holders of a valid bus ticket!
