Not sure what there is to test, but at least there is progress:
Amtrak’s Ethan Allen services will begin accommodating bicycles on board in a demonstration program later this month, U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer said Tuesday. But an Amtrak spokesman cautioned that the program was only a pilot and is not yet available to the general public.
The demonstration project follows a push by state Sens. Betty Little and Brad Hoylman, as well as Schumer, to allow passengers to take their bicycles with them to destinations throughout the Hudson Valley, Adirondacks and Vermont.
Amtrak will use specially fitted cafe cars that can carry the bicycles and their riders on the Ethan Allen.
