Booking Limits for Number of Passengers per Transaction
If you need to book travel for a large number of passengers, or for several children and/or infants, the following explanation of our booking rules may be helpful.
Four Age Ranges
Each passenger traveling on Amtrak is initially characterized by age as follows:
- Adult (16+ years of age)
- Youth (13-15 years of age)
- Child (2 - 12 years of age)
- Infant (younger than 2 years of age)
Reservations for passengers 13, 14 and 15 years old traveling alone cannot be booked on Amtrak.com, but can be made in accordance with the Amtrak Unaccompanied Minor Policy by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL.
Adults, youth and children are considered fare-paying passengers. Passengers 2-12 years of age qualify for half-fare under certain circumstances and all persons 13 years of age or older, and all unaccompanied minors, pay adult fares. One child under 2 years of age, that is not occupying a separate seat, may travel free with each passenger paying an adult fare; passengers under 2 years in excess of this number will be charged the fare for children 2-12 years of age.
No More than Eight Fare-Paying Passengers per Transaction
In each online transaction, you may make reservations for no more than eight fare-paying passengers.
You may make reservations for more than eight passengers, but only when those passengers are free infants. If you exceed the eight fare-paying passengers rule, you can still book travel for your party by completing additional online transactions with no more than eight fare-paying passengers.
