Pittsburgh-to-New York train to add baggage car for bikes | TribLIVE.com

Bicyclists can place their bike on a baggage car at select stations when taking the train from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia and onto New York, Amtrak said Monday.

Train stations in Pittsburgh, Johnstown, Altoona, Harrisburg, Lancaster and Philadelphia have been offering that service on the Pennsylvanian since earlier this month, but not at the Greensburg station, said Beth Toll, an Amtrak spokeswoman. Amtrak only offers the service at stations where it has an agent that checks the bags for passengers using the baggage car.

At stations like Greensburg, passengers cannot bring their bicycles onto the coach cars of the train, unless they are folding bikes that meet Amtrak’s size requirements, Toll said.
