Bicycles will continue to be banned from Wellington's commuter trains during peak hours after a woman was ordered off by two police officers.
She tried to take her bike onboard with her from Lower Hutt just before 9am yesterday morning.
The woman claims two police threatened to arrest her as they ordered her to get off the train because it was too crowded.
Greater Wellington Regional Council chair Fran Wilde says trains are too busy to allow room for bicycles during peak hour services.
"We have got great spaces on the trains for bikes, pushchairs obviously, and wheelchairs, but we've had to say that at rush hour, when the trains are absolutely crowded, people have precedence over bikes."
Fran Wilde says it's similar to what happens in other cities around the world.
