As far as I know, right now it's just between Lorton, VA (about 45 min outside of DC) to Sanford, FL (about 40 min from Orlando). I don't think it's offered anywhere else. Cost me about $200 for a one way trip. Bring some good reading material for the train ride though.

But the train's proximity to me (hour drive or so) is desirable. It's definitely worth doing if you attend any of the bike festivities that Daytona has to offer, BIKE WEEK, BEACH WEEK, or BIKETOBERFEST. It drops you off less than an hour from Daytona and you have your bike there. It's a great scene for that. I definitely think it serves its purpose.
