BIKES ON BOARD - Over 300 Bicycle Trips Using CTrail Hartford Line Trains
CTrail Hartford Line trains have carried over 300 bikes since the bike policy was updated in mid-August. The new policy allows passengers to bring bicycles on board all CTrail trains on the new Hartford Line between New Haven and Springfield, MA.
"We are reminding folks that now is the perfect time to get out and enjoy a fall bike ride," said CTDOT Public Transportation Bureau Chief Richard Andreski. "Let the rails extend your ride and discover some new routes."
Bicyclists can now access virtually all parts of the region aboard CTrail and interconnecting rail services. Here are the bicycle rules for each rail service:
- CTrail Shore Line East
- MTA Metro-North Railroad
- Amtrak - Amtrak currently does not allow bicycles (except folding bikes) on Amtrak operated Hartford Line trains. Be sure to check the Hartford Line Schedule to determine if you’ll be on an Amtrak train or a CTrail train. CTDOT is working with Amtrak to update this policy.
