Have you heard about the $3 fare for bicyclists?
Whether you are a confident cyclist or a pint-sized learner with training wheels, you can ride your way to better health. Bike Aboard! allows cyclists to bike the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail in one direction and ride the train in the other.
The train can be flagged down at boarding stations when standing on the station deck with your bike.
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the train’s scheduled arrival.
Pay your fare when you board.
One Way Only: $3 per person, ages 3 and up with your bike.
Exact fare is appreciated. No guaranteed seats. This rate only applies to bicyclists.
NEW in 2013: Run Aboard! and Hike Aboard!
Runners and Hikers can now take the FIRST train southbound or the LAST train northbound each day the train operates (1-way only) and receive the special $3 rate.
All other times require a $9 one-way ticket.
Bike Aboard follows the Scenic Train Schedule - which operates Wednesday - Sunday June through October.
