Amtrak Rules concerning bikes

Joseph Pafundi from Saratoga NY on 5/12/2022 9:02:03 AM:
Good morning! In order to change pace and avoid driving to Rochester area, I would like to take the train from Schenectady. I realize that I will need a reservation. However, will I have to pack my bike in a box or are there racks upon which one can hang one's bike? Any adive would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Joseph Pafundi

No need to box the bike if you can get an available reservation with "rack" on a given train. A rack may be within a passenger car or it may be a separate baggage car. Either way -- just racking the bike.
