Has anyone taken their bike on the Amtrak since they allowed bikes to roll on?
I'd like to bring my road bike up with me when I'm in Chicago this weekend - but navigating Union Station seems like it might be a bit hairy. Any advice would be appreciated!
Great, thanks for this helpful info! I will let you know how it goes!
This is really helpful - thank you!
I think the easiest entrance/exit to take (all street level) is on the NW corner of the big hall which will lead you to Adams and Clinton.
I agree, that is the easiest way to avoid the stairs and escalators. The crowds are not normally a problem.
Hi all, thanks for the info! It worked out well - on the way in I was on the City of New Orleans, they took the bike from me and put it in luggage. On the way back I was on the 'local' train, the Illini - very little help from the conductors who advised me to just stand it up in the space for luggage in front of the front row of seats. Less than ideal, but do-able. Union Station itself was totally navigable with the bike. I'd do it again! Two great lakeshore trail rides.
