Bikes Now Carried on 3 More Amtrak Routes

Amtrak has expanded its programs of carrying bicycles to three corridors in the East.

Starting Sept. 8, the passenger carrier began accepting bike aboard Keystone Service and Downeaster trains as well as trains operating on the Hartford Line.

Bikers must pay a $20 fee but reservations are required.

Those booking tickets on the Amtrak website or app should check for an icon that indicates that bike service is available on the train they wish to ride.

If so, the passenger should proceed to the “Add Ons” function to add bikes to a reservation.

Passengers can also make reservations by calling 800-USA-RAIL

In a service advisory, Amtrak said those with bikes should arrive at a station at least 30 minutes before to departure.

All panniers and bags attached to bike must be removed and consolidated before boarding.
