In addition to aggressive steps to enhanced cleaning protocols at stations and on trains, Amtrak has implemented new measures to deliver a New Standard of Travel:
- Face coverings: Amtrak requires all customers and employees wear face masks or an alternative face covering while in stations and on board.
- Limiting bookings: We are limiting bookings on most trains to allow for more physical distancing in seating areas. Individuals traveling alone may use the seat next to them for personal belongings, while friends and family members will easily find seats together.
- Air Quality: All of our trains are equipped with onboard filtration systems with a fresh air exchange rate every 4-5 minutes.
- Physical distancing: Signage has been displayed at our busiest stations to indicate safe distances in high traffic areas. In addition, protective plastic barriers have been installed at customer counters at our busiest stations.
The Reward Travel Sale is not available on all departures and all dates and blackout dates apply. Seating is limited, and seats may not be available on all trains, or all times. Routes and schedules are subject to change without notice. Once travel has begun, no changes to the itinerary are permitted; other restrictions may apply.
Amtrak continues to evaluate current practices and pilot new opportunities to support personal safety. Visit Amtrak.com for more information about how Amtrak is maintaining a safe environment.
