The service started rolling out on September 6, 2013. John Lindenmayer, LMB Advocacy & Policy Director has worked hard to make this happen. The feature is currently available on the Port Huron Chicago run and I can't wait until they include the Detroit Ann Arbor Chicago run also as boarding that one is much closer to home. The current route ferries passengers through two major college towns that are both bicycle friendly, Lansing home to Michigan State University and Kalamazoo home to Western University. Once the Det-Ann Arbor-Chicago run allows them this will also include Ann Arbor that is home to University of Michigan another bicycle friendly campus town.
For now, I'll have to head up to Flint to catch that train for the next Chicago trip.
