Celebrate Pride With Amtrak
We Take Pride in Our LGBTQIA+ Riders & Employees
Show your Pride at hundreds of celebrations across the country this summer and get there with our convenient downtown-to-downtown service. Skip the traffic, the hassles of flying, and take the train to the event and arrive just a short walk from some of the nation's biggest Pride celebrations.
Check out a list of Pride celebrations happening near an Amtrak station this June. You can travel with all your besties to save up to 60% off with Share Fares, and ride with pride. Stop by the PrideFest booths at Chicago and DC to meet some Amtrak employees in attendance representing the Pride Employee Resource Group, and ask them why Amtrak is a great place for LGBTQIA+ community members to work.

Amtrak is Recognized by the Human Rights Campaign for Workplace Equality
In 2022, Amtrak received acknowledgement for its efforts to support the LGBTQ+ community by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. This recognition is the result of Amtrak's efforts to foster a diverse workplace where we strive to make all employees feel valued and included.
Amtrak received a score of 90 out of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI); the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measures corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality and inclusion.
The results of the 2022 CEI recognizes and celebrates 1,271 companies that promote LGBTQ+-friendly workplace policies. In 2002, the first year of the CEI, only 13 companies achieved a top score, demonstrating the incredible 20-year impact the CEI has on the business world. This year’s CEI reflects growth across every measurement category.
Amtrak currently has several employee resource groups, including Express Pride for members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies.
