New Bike Policy Effective May 3, 2009

You’ll love Metro-North’s new “bike friendly” policy. It makes it easier for those who use bicycles as part of their travel plans and activities to ride our trains, and it does not affect the quality of our service for you “regular commuters” who don’t. So everyone wins!


The new policy now allows bicycles:

  • On most trains scheduled to depart from Grand Central Terminal between 5:30 AM and 9 AM, 3:01 PM – 3:59 PM, 8:01 – 8:15 PM, and on connecting trains.
  • On most trains arriving in Grand Central GCT between 4 PM – 8 PM, and on connecting trains.

Please remember: bicycles are still not permitted on inbound AM Peak and outbound PM Peak trains as well as during the holiday periods from which they are currently prohibited.  (Exceptions to this policy are identified in your timetable.) In addition, allowing bicycles on our trains will be at the discretion of our conductors, should conditions on a particular train warrant their being prohibited… (Folding bikes, however, are allowed on board all Metro-North trains. Please fold your bike before boarding and don’t block the aisle or doors. )

View a bike permit application for full details.

We'll pick you up and drop you off at the Westport Station in Westport, CT.  Some great restaurants just a short bike ride away for an "apres-ride" lunch!  You can obtain a bike permit at Grand Central before you board. If you don't have your own bike, remember you can ride one of our "Comfort Bikes" (included in the cost of the Tour.)  For more info on Metro North schedules go to:
