Carry-On Baggage


What's Allowed?

Each passenger may bring:

  • one personal item, 25 lbs. (12 kg) and 14 x 11 x 7 inches, and 
  • two carry-on items, 50 lbs. (23 kg) and 28 x 22 x 14 inches each
    (Pacific Surfliner: up to 28 x 22 x 11 inches each). 

Make sure you have a tag with your name and address on the outside of all your bags.

Overweight Bags

Overweight bags must be repacked so they are under 50 lbs. Boxes may be purchased at staffed stations to aid in repacking.

Excess Bags

A $20 excess baggage fee will be charged for each carry-on and personal item above the quantity and size limits. A maximum of two excess bags are permitted per passenger. Fees will be collected at the station or onboard the train if the station is unstaffed. If checked baggage is available, you can check two bags through to your final destination free of charge.

Carry-On Bags

Passengers must be able to safely lift carry-on items over their heads onto the luggage shelf. Please note that bags must fit in the sizer at the station. If they do not fit, speak with an agent or visit to determine if your train offers checked baggage service.

Infant Items

Passengers traveling with infants under the age of two may bring an additional infant item onboard (stroller, diaper bag, etc.), which does not count toward the carry-on baggage or personal item limit.

Storing Items

Personal items such as a small bag or backpack must fit under the seat. Carry-on bags must be kept with you, and need to fit in the overhead racks or luggage tower. Most buses have baggage storage bins under the bus floor, and the bus driver will assist you. Do not store items in empty seats, aisles, vestibules or other areas where they may cause annoyance to other passengers or present a safety hazard.
