Bicycles, e-bikes, e-scooters and e-unicycles

Bicycles and e-bikes are accepted on the IFS Cloud Cable Car at all times.

Guests with bicycles and e-bikes travel for free on the cable car before 09:30 on weekdays, excluding Bank Holidays.

E-scooters and e-unicycles are prohibited on the IFS Cloud Cable Car following TfL's policy.

Accessibility

The IFS Cloud Cable Car has step-free access, and is accessible to most wheelchairs including motorised wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

The maximum weight is 300kg and the maximum size is 700mm by 1300mm. We may ask you to confirm dimensions of your scooter and we may check using a floor marking to make sure you can board safely.

Customers get on and off through the same doors and there may not be enough space for you to turn round. This means you may have to reverse your wheelchair or scooter to get in or out of the cabin.

The cable cars can be slowed down to allow you plenty of time to board.

Electric wheelchairs and mobility scooters must be turned off inside the cars.

Fares

You can pre-book your tickets online. You can also travel pay as you go using a contactless payment card or device, or Oyster card.
