How to bring your bike along

If you plan to bring a bicycle with you when traveling, we suggest you reach out to the carrier you will be or would like to travel with, as additional fees may apply.

Each bus and train carrier has its own bicycle policy. 

A few examples are: 

Amtrak: Fees may apply when traveling with a bicycle. Standard full-size bicycles may be carried on and stored onboard bicycle racks on select trains. A bicycle reservation is required for some trains. See more information here, and reserve a spot for your bike by calling Amtrak at 1 (800) 872-7245.

Greyhound: Bicycles, golf clubs, skis, and ski poles must be packed in wood, canvas or other substantial containers, and securely fastened (you’ll need to pay an oversized item charge too). Contact Greyhound at +1 (800) 231-2222 for more information.

Peter Pan: Unpackaged bicycles may be transported in the luggage bay bin on a space-available basis. Bicycles are part of the free baggage allowance; if the number of bags with the bicycle exceeds the allowance, additional baggage fees may apply.  

Go Buses: Bicycles and skis can be stored below the bus as long as room exists. Please speak to a customer service agent before boarding.

Best Bus: You may bring your bike with you, however, you should arrive early because it will depend on available luggage space. 

Via Rail: Via Rail accepts 1 bike per passenger. The fees for the transportation of a bicycle are $25 plus taxes, per direction. Not every train can transport bicycles; see here for more information.

OurBus: Bicycles may be carried in the baggage compartments when there is sufficient room after all other baggage has been loaded, and only at the owner's risk. Bicycles must be carried in a separate baggage compartment or placed in such a manner as not to damage any baggage in any way.

For more information, or to add a bike to your reservation, please contact the carrier directly. For your convenience, you can find the contact information for all carriers available on Wanderu here:
