Riding the rails has long held an allure for the discriminating traveler. That sentiment still holds true — Amtrak travel offers a richer travel experience and provides some surprisingly practical advantages too. Climb aboard Amtrak today and see for yourself.
Unlike the laundry list of surcharges airlines pile on, Amtrak charges no extra fees — what you see is what you get. Amtrak will quote and price your travel at the lowest fare available at the time you make your reservation. And with no booking fee, it pays to check it out.
Why bother with out-of-the-way airports, overbooked flights, taxis or expensive downtown parking? Take Amtrak instead — trains go right where you want to go, delivering you from the heart of one city to the heart of another. What could be more convenient? Save yourself the aggravation and give yourself more time for your business or fun things to do with the family.
Skip the buses and traffic on the road and instead treat yourself to spacious and comfortable seating, access to the Café Car and Quiet Car and many more thoughtful amenities onboard the train. Rail travel is at the head of the class when it comes to eco-friendly travel. Trains consume less energy and produce less harmful pollutants than either car or air travel. Hopping on an Amtrak train will save you gas and daily wear and tear on your car. It also reduces the ever-increasing traffic congestion on the roads and in the skies.
Enjoy the spirit of a road trip without the hassles. Instead of being confined to a cramped, uncomfortable seat for your entire trip, a train lets you get up to stretch your legs and walk around to other parts of the train. That's not even an option when you fly, ride a bus or drive a car. You even get the pleasure of chatting with fellow passengers from all walks of life and all parts of the world. When you do want to have a seat, relax in one of our nice, wide seats with plenty of legroom and enjoy views that most travelers will never see.
Say goodbye to tiny packets of airplane peanuts and greasy drive-through menus; say hello to more appealing food choices. Whether its the casual food service of the Café Car or the complete sit-down meal service of the Dining Car, you will find a variety of real food to satisfy your hunger.
Connect with the Amtrak community your way — Facebook, Twitter and YouTube by starting or joining the conversations about your Amtrak experience, train travel adventures or your recommended train routes and tips to make the most of train travel.
So take a trip on Amtrak and enjoy the ride — getting there really is half the fun.
