National Bike to Work Day is Friday, May 15. To celebrate, VRE will begin its new bicycle policy that day. Full size bikes will be permitted on select VRE trains. Now you can go completely green: ride your bike to the station, ride the train, and ride your bike to the office. Bicycles will be permitted on the northernmost car only (the one furthest from the engine) and must be secured to the bench seats on the southern half of the car. The northern half of the car has bench seating that is reserved for riders with disabilities. For full details including which trains you can bring your bike on, visit our website at http://www.vre.org/service/policies.html.

PLEASE NOTE: Priority for the bench seating will go to bicycles. If you prefer bench seating, but do not plan on bringing your bike on the train, you may have to move.
