This is fantastic! Hats off to the MDOT & Amtrak for working through all the kinks to make this happen - it's been a long time coming.

Now we just need to ensure that multi-modal travel is a possibility by following the recently adopted Michigan State Rail Plan which clearly states that bicycles need to be accommodated on board passenger trains. It should be easy for travelers to make connections from one mode of transportation to another to easily and safely link trips. One great example is the potential for train travelers to travel from community to community and then bicycle to their final destinations.

Makes sense right? Does to 1700 people and growing!
