VIA Rail's Bike-Train is back for 2011 summer

Via has added baggage cars to more trains so more bikes can be carried to more places.

Where are these places?
  • Toronto
  • Montréal
  • Ottawa
  • Québec City
  • London
  • Windsor
  • Jonquière
  • Senneterre (this is deep in the northern bush!)
It is also possible that bikes can be packed in a box and carried as baggage on other routes, but don't take this as 100% fact.

Read more here (news) and here for the VIA Rail's Bike-Train webpage.

It costs $20 per bike each way, which is pretty reasonable.

Note that this not on all trains/days, so check the VIA website first.

Has anybody done the VIA bike-train thing? Leave a comment please.
