Carry-on bikes are now accepted from all Downeaster stations in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
Newly installed luggage racks that convert to bike racks make it possible 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. Bicycle space is limited to four per train, and a specific bike reservation is required in advance of travel. A nominal bicycle fee applies.
About the new Amtrak Downeaster Carry-On Bicycle Program:
- Space is limited and advance-reservations are required for the passenger and the bicycle.
- Passengers traveling with bikes are encouraged to arrive at the station at least 15 minutes prior to departure.
- All panniers and bags attached to your bicycle need to be removed and consolidated before boarding.
