Bike Program

Bike onboard

Bikes are now accepted from all Downeaster stations in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

Luggage racks that convert to bike racks make it easy to roll standard full-sized bikes on board from any Downeaster station, then secure and store them on the train. Please note: the front wheel must be removed.  A nominal bicycle fee of $3 to $8 applies.
