Bike Services Expanded in North Carolina on Amtrak Trains
Continuing a service that was made available on North Carolina’s Piedmont service, Amtrak now offers walk-up checked bicycle service aboard Carolinian trains 79 and 80 at the following stations: Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Burlington, Greensboro, High Point, Salisbury, Kannapolis, and Charlotte.
Walk-up bicycles are free of charge, but reservations are required for the six spaces. Passenger must have a ticket for the bicycle and a baggage tag. Baggage tags can be obtained at the Amtrak ticket office.
Only standard size bikes will be permitted. Large seat/saddle bags must be removed from the bike. These items can be checked or carried on the train. They will be counted as a checked or carry-on item.
Passenger checking bicycles must arrive 30 minutes prior to train departure to allow sufficient time to obtain a ticket and baggage tag, and get the bike to the baggage car.
