Looking to share a shuttle from Jefferson City to sedalia early on Saturday October 21. We wanted to take the Amtrak, but there is only room for one of our bikes. There are two in our party. Disappointed we cant get on the Amtrak.

Could you send a bike on a previous train and have them leave it at the train stop?

If you're trying to purchase tickets online, then it won't let you add more bikes, but if you call Amtrak and purchase over the phone, they might be able to squeeze you in. I've booked a bike on a full train before by explaining my "hard luck story".

It's worth a shot. They can override the system and make a note for the conductors.

It's worth a shot.

I had the same issue with booked bike spots for a ride in October. Just called Amtrak and she said the only option was to find a different train. I guess I'm not the smooth talker that you are!

Is there a local phone number for Amtrak at Sadilia and Kirkwood?

I don't believe Sedalia is a staffed station. There are people there but not Amtrak people. The bike limit is because there is only a small space for storage of oversize items. Several seats have been removed. It would be up to the conductor to allow additional oversize items. If there was space, or a closed (unoccupied) car he may allow it. Check for last minute cancellations. Some book well in advance then the weather or their plans change.
