Hello, Curious about Amtrak and bikes , I purchased a ticket for the 10th of August one way to Pittsburgh and paid for the $20 bike upgrade as well. I've seen some chatter here about Amtrak not honoring the bike upgrade? Would I potentially be forced to box up the bike at union station? Would really like to avoid that. Anyone on this page done the trip recently? I've tried calling Amtrak and asking but they weren't very helpful. Thanks, Matthew

From what others have posted in this forum, they’re honoring your bike ticket but the bike storage cars are not being used during Covid so they just lay them down in some storage area or something like that. You should be good. No one has had issues from what I’ve read. Scroll through a few pages of this forum, a few others have had the same question. John
