First Trenitalia gets Virgin West Coast

Postby Sweep » 14 Aug 2019, 1:14pm

Wasn't sure where to put this but thought here best as us UK tourers/long distance cyclists have a certain interest in booking bikes on this route.

Anyone know if bike booking might be about to improve?

Or, heaven forfend, allowed online?

Hopefully Trenitalia won't bring the Italian system of charging for bike carriage.

(unless they pair it with sensible Italian fares).

Anyone know if cycling UK made any representations about bike carriage during the franchise process?
