Choose all that apply: Amtrak is a) convenient... b) comfortable... c) scenic... d) green? For an increasing number of Amtrak riders, the answer is all of the above. Despite the best efforts of some Washington legislators, Amtrak is staying on track. Ridership and revenue are up. Improvements to rider experience and infrastructure are being implemented. Americans are gradually giving Amtrak a second look. They're discovering that traveling by Amtrak train is the green, easy, affordable way to experience the USA by rail.
What they see is America up close: from city skylines, to mountain peaks, to ocean beaches. Amtrak's 500+ stations serve 46 states. Comfortable Amtrak coaches have more leg room and wider aisles than planes. Most feature cafe or dining car service with full bar. Amtrak maintains safety and security without airport-style passenger screening. In most instances, trains leave a smaller carbon footprint than planes or cars.
Amtrak train travel services are as varied as the American scene. High-speed Acela trains whisk riders between Boston and Washington DC at speeds of up to 150 mph/250 kmh... Northerners trade a dozen hours in traffic for a hassle-free Amtrak Auto Train-trip to Orlando theme parks... and Coast Starlight guests are pampered as they thrill to breathtaking views along the Pacific shore.
This USA train travel guide profiles all Amtrak train routes and includes information amtrak schedule amtrak tickets . Also covered are Amtrak passenger services, promotions, and USA Rail Pass information plus up-to-date information on requirements for crossing the US/Canadian border by train. The menu above will get you started.
