Bring Your Bike
Ride the rails, then ride your bicycle once you reach your scenic Virginia destination! Amtrak offers a number of services to transport your bike onboard. The options vary based on your train, route and stations.
Between May and October 2018, cyclists taking advantage of the scenic Virginia Capital Trail don’t have to commit to a 100-mile round-trip. You can participate in a pilot program to board your bicycle and take the train in one direction between Richmond’s Main Street Station (RVM) and Williamsburg (WBG). Just make an advance reservation online, booking a one-way ticket, and pay a $20 fee. Each train can accommodate 12 bicycles, so customers need to be certain they see the bicycle add-on option that appears during the booking process when space is available. The following trains participate in the pilot program.
- Friday/Saturday: train 65 departs Main Street Station at 9:34 a.m. and arrives in Williamsburg at 10:38 a.m.
- Sunday-Thursday: train 67 departs Main Street Station at 10:10 a.m. and arrives in Williamsburg at 11:14 a.m.
