Metrolink Bike Cars

Metrolink has added Bike Cars to accommodate more bikes on select trains. The lower levels of the new Bike Cars are equipped with multiple stalls that are designed to hold three bikes each. Bike Cars are identified by a yellow “Bike Car” decal on the side of the train or bike train wrap.

Bikes are allowed on ALL Metrolink train cars and each train car is designed to hold three bikes.  The special Bike Cars are designed to hold 18 bikes on the lower level. Trains with Bike Cars are listed on Metrolink's timetables but are subject to equipment availability. Click here to see the current timetable.
