In an effort to attract riders back to the commuter rail lines, the MTA will be waiving the $5 dollar fee and permit requirement to bring a bike on Metro-North and the Long Island Railroad.
The change goes into effect September 7th, but the MTA will also have a one-day grace period on August 22nd, the day the Five Boro Bike Tour returns after a hiatus during the pandemic.
While the permit rule will be removed in September, all other bike rules remain in effect. That includes a maximum allowance of four bikes per train on weekdays, and eight on weekends.
Other rules that will remain in effect prohibit bikes on trains during rush hours, on several major holidays, and around holiday weekends.
