Can anyone suggest a shuttle service. We want to leave our cars at the long term lot at Ronald Reagon Airport. Thanks.

I have just completed the ride and I took the train. The train ticket was $47.00 and another $10.00 to ship the bike. It was super easy however the only places to load and unload the bike is Pittsburg and DC hope this helps.

I can tell you that we have used "River and Trail Outfitters" and had a good experience with them. They were on time and got us to mile post zero safely. Using this website go to "Towns and Services". Select Brunswick. Go to the shuttle icon and click on the link. There are other shuttle services out there. This company was the only one open on the dates we needed. Hope this helps you and have a great ride!

We just got done with the trail a few weeks ago. We left the car at Pitts (The Pump House), and then when we got to D.C. we pedaled out to the airport and rented a town & Country Van one-way to drive back to Pitts. We drove to the car and then returned the van to the Pitts airport. Cost was around $230.00 Dollars.

We dropped cars at great falls, registered with visitors center, met c&o bike shop, Hancock and took shuttle back to Hancock and rode back to cars, 120 miles, worked very well

You can rent a car from Hertz in Herndon for a one way trip to Cumberland. Small SUV should run about $150.

Thanks for the replies. We've decided that the 4 or 5 of us will meet up in Cumberland and leave our bikes and gear at a hotel, drive our cars to Reagon Airport ( long term lot) and take Amtrak back to Cumberland and begin the ride the next morning. This works out well since we are all our coming from far away and the hotel stay will be nice b/4 the start. I do wish Amtrak would do whatever is needed to correct the no unloading bikes at Cumberland policy. This will be my first time on Amtrak so I'm kind of excited about that too.
