Support Bikes on Board Amtrak’s Downeaster Train

Add your name to the growing list of supporters of Bikes on Board

The Bicycle Coalition of Maine has been engaged with the rail authority – NNEPRA, Amtrak, and many other stakeholders as part of a campaign to increase roll-on/roll-off access for bicycles along the Downeaster at all stations. Currently, only Brunswick and Portland accommodate this type of service for passengers with bicycles. At the other four stations in Maine (Wells, Saco, Old Orchard, and Freeport) you may not bring your bike on or off the train unless it’s boxed up. We have been working with a coalition of groups across the country to bring roll-on/roll-off service to every station in Maine.
