Book Your Bike



The Pacific Surfliner bicycle reservation system makes it easier to bring your bike aboard the train.


With a bike reservation, you are guaranteed bike rack space.

Free bike reservations* are available online, from Quik-Trak kiosks, through Amtrak station ticket agents, or by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL.

Bike reservations must accompany a valid Amtrak ticket for each travel segment.

Book early, as bike space is limited and may not be available on all trains or departures.

Please note:  Amtrak Ten-trip and monthly pass holders can now obtain a bike-only reservation at a Quik-Trak machine, from station agents (at staffed stations) or by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL.



When booking a trip, just click “Add Bike To Trip” after selecting the departure date and class of service.
