Tell Amtrak - President Joe Boardman to Allow bikes on trains between New York City and Canada

New York City and Montreal have a combined population of nearly 10 million people. Many of them have and use their bicycles to get to work as well as for leisure and exercise. It is estimated, for instance, that more than 200,000 New Yorkers ride their bicycles daily to work. Major cycling publications have also consistently rated Montreal as one of the top bicycle friendly cities in the world. Both cities are now expanding cycling options for residents and visitors within their cities via popular bicycle sharing programs too.
In communities all along the Adirondack, Ethan Allen, Empire, and Maple Leaf Amtrak rail lines, we’ve seen a focus on creating and expanding hiking and biking trails. These communities and all of us who have signed this online petition are ready to work with Amtrak to promote “green travel” options in these cities and communities if Amtrak will allow bikes on these lines.
