  • 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.

    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 9 bikes on the lower level.
