Amtrak Now Offers Bike Service on the Vermonter

Enjoy the journey and explore the stops along the way

WASHINGTON – Amtrak is launching bike service on the Vermonter to provide passengers a more convenient way to travel with their bicycles. Tickets for carry-on bike service are now available for travel beginning May 1.

The Vermonter operates daily between Washington, D.C., and St. Albans, Vt., with service to Philadelphia, New York City, Hartford, Conn., Springfield, Mass. and Essex Junction, Vt., and other intermediate stops.

This service provides passengers with a way to travel with their bikes. Amtrak partnered with the Vermont Agency of Transportation, Vermont Department of Tourism, Adventure Cycling Association, and other bicycle and passenger rail groups to form an advisory bicycle task force to oversee this project.

“We’ve worked with the cycling community to identify solutions and bring new ideas to offer services for customers who travel with their bikes,” said Deborah Stone-Wulf, Amtrak Vice President of Sales and Customer Service. “We look forward to measuring the success of this service with an eye to expansion to additional routes across our national network.”
