Amtrak Bike Task Force

The goal of the task force is to make bike travel by train easier and more convenient. America's rail network can facilitate connectivity to bike touring, trails, recreation, and other activities important to the economies of communities throughout the nation. Through the Amtrak Bike Task Force, the League is working to strengthen the transportation network and availability of transportation choices.

Since its inception in January 2014, the task force has explored ways to simplify bringing bikes on trains and we've made progress on bike parking on trains and bike accessibility at stations. We know there is much more we can do and we hope you'll take our survey to shape our future advocacy.

MoBikeFed comment: MoBikeFed is part of the Amtrak Bike Task Force - which we are hoping will be able to work over time to create a more seamless bicycle-train transportation experience in Missouri and across the U.S.

Whether you have taken your bicycle on Amtrak and would like to give feedback, or thought about doing it but were discouraged for one reason or another, please do take the survey - the results are shared with Amtrak monthly, and this feedback helps guide future changes:


In Missouri, all Amtrak routes allow bicycles to be transported - as roll-on bicycles on the Missouri River Runner and as boxed bicycles on the California Zephyr.

Using the Missouri River Runner in conjunction with the Katy and Rock Island Trails is a very convenient and often-used option.
