Checked Baggage

For your convenience, check your baggage free of charge. Amtrak offers checked baggage service at a number of stations and on many trains and Thruway Services. This service is only available to ticketed passengers whose origin and destination stations offer checked baggage. Not all trains or locations are equipped to handle checked baggage. Find your station(s) to see if checked baggage is available.

2 Bags - 50 lbs. — 75 Linear Inches*

2 Additional Bags — $20 Each
Oversize Baggage (76 - 100 Linear Inches) — $20 Each
  • Luggage must be checked 45 minutes prior to scheduled train departure.
  • If checked baggage is not offered on a train/bus in your itinerary, it may be accepted on another train/bus bound for the same destination (excluding firearms). Advance check-in is recommended.
  • En-route transfers between stations will require at least two hours of scheduled layover time to avoid delays.
