Use of Oxygen Equipment

Amtrak allows passengers who use oxygen equipment (e.g., bottled oxygen, oxygen concentrators) to bring the equipment onboard Amtrak trains with certain restrictions. Oxygen equipment transport is allowed on trains only for passengers with a disability.

Making Reservations with Oxygen Equipment

We request that you give notice of your need to bring oxygen equipment and make reservations in advance. Because it is not possible to make reservations that include oxygen equipment on Amtrak.com, please call 1-800-USA-RAIL (1-800-872-7245) or TTY (1-800-523-6590) if you need to bring oxygen equipment on your trip. Agents are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
