Following our test on the Capitol Limited, the next step toward getting roll-on service was for Amtrak to lead a task force, to work out all the details. We’re happy to announce that in a meeting today, they agreed to go forward with this.

Yay!

Please share.

    Planning on cycling from Pittsburgh to DC with my sons as soon as school is over late May. Would rather use walk-on-bike than rent a car to return. Called Amtrak but still no walk-on-bike service for the Capital Limited.

    Thanks for your help in promoting this service. Here in Missouri the Katy Trail-Amtrak partnership works. Who at Amtrak should be contacted to expedite (fast track!) these basic services?

  • We’re taking a dad/daughter bike trip down the C&O from Harper’s Ferry to DC next month.
    Walk-on-Bike trains on the Capitol Limited line make a lot of sense for such bike friendly destination cities. If only Amtrak had them available now.
