Reservations Required

Advance reservations are required for trainside bicycle service. Make a reservation for your bike at the same time you are booking the rest of your travel here at Amtrak.com, at a Quik-Trak kiosk, by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL or by visiting an Amtrak ticket office.

You must have a travel document (ticket) for your bicycle and a baggage tag. Baggage tags can be obtained at the Amtrak ticket office. Passengers boarding at unstaffed stations between Raleigh and Charlotte can obtain a bike tag from the conductor.

Eligible Bicycles

Only standard size bikes will be permitted. Each passenger may bring one bicycle. Large seat/saddle bags must be removed from the bike. These items can be checked or carried on the train. Items removed from bikes will be counted as a checked or carry-on item.

Arrive Early

If you are checking a bicycle, you must arrive 45 minutes prior to your train's departure to allow sufficient time to obtain a ticket and baggage tag, and get the bike to the baggage car.

Loading Bicycles

You must be physically capable of lifting your bike up to a station employee standing on a baggage cart or to the train crew at the baggage car door. Once in the baggage car, Amtrak personnel will store and secure your bike in the bike racks. Passengers will not be permitted in the baggage car.
