Bike reservation fees are $20 in each direction, in addition to the customer's fare. Customers can get the lowest fares on Amtrak.com if they book 14 or more days in advance. Typically, fares for coach range from $17 to $23 between Richmond Main Street Station and Williamsburg, and $36 to $48 between Washington Union Station and Williamsburg.
LOADING AND UNLOADING:
All bikes will be carried in the baggage car. There are 12 spaces available per train between Alexandria and Newport News and 6 spaces available north of Alexandria up to Boston. All must be reserved through Amtrak.com in advance.
Customers at Main Street Station should use the elevator, not the stairs, to bring their bikes to the second level. Staff at both stations have been prepped to expect bikes rolling through the station. At both stations, prior to train arrival, cyclists should queue up at the front of the train, which is where the baggage car will be. Cyclists should be able to lift their bike up to about chest height, where the conductor will be waiting in the baggage car to receive it.
Amtrak publishes on their website guidelines for bike sizes and loading: https://www.amtrak.com/bring-your-bicycle-onboard
