Special note about taking a bike on your trip | We were recently informed that bikes are not permitted inside Union Station at this time. Hard to believe but ostensibly true. Until this rule is amended, we think it advisable *not* to bring an accompanying bike on your trip if you will be boarding or stepping off Amtrak’s Vermonter in Springfield.
