Passengers traveling with an infant/small child in a child car seat may place the seat in a vacant seat only if it is not needed for a paying passenger; children under 2 years of age may be required to ride on the passenger’s lap and the child car seat stored in an appropriate baggage area.

Devices with Sound

For the comfort and peace of your fellow passengers, Amtrak asks that all riders use earphones when using audio or video devices.
