Starting Saturday (Dec. 13), MARC Penn line passengers will be allowed to bring bikes on weekend trains.
MTA announced the launch of a pilot program Friday that makes room for manual two-wheeled transportation in a special bike car. The bike car, which was made by refurbishing a single-level rail car that was put out of service, can accommodate 16 bikes. But it could be expanded to fit 10 more if the program proves popular. A second bike car could also be added in 2015.
“The bike community has lobbied for more bicycle access to trains for years, and MTA listened,” said Nate Evans, Executive Director of Bike Maryland. “We are thrilled to see this come to fruition.”
