The Amtrak Auto Train offers daily, non-stop service from Lorton, Va. (near Washington, D.C.), and Sanford, Fla. (near Orlando). Customers can skip I-95 and travel with their vehicles, including cars, vans, SUVs, motorcycles and even small boats or jet-skis. This is the only such service in the U.S. and eliminates nearly 900 miles of driving between the Northeast and all points in Florida.

Amtrak is leading the way by setting a new standard of travel with enhanced safety and cleaning measures. In an effort to simplify and safeguard the travel experience, several cleaning, contact-free and convenience measures have been implemented into every part of the customer journey, including:

  • Enhanced Cleaning: Amtrak has enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols at stations and onboard our trains.
  • Face Covering: For your well-being and ours, Amtrak requires that all customers and employees wear a face mask or covering that fully covers the entire mouth and nose while onboard and in stations. Face masks can be removed on board when customers are in their private room and the door is closed. 
  •  Air Quality: All trains are equipped with onboard filtration systems with a fresh air exchange rate every 4-5 minutes.
  • Physical Distancing: We are limiting bookings on reserved trains to allow for more physical distancing. Individuals traveling alone may use the seat next to them for personal belongings, while friends and family members will easily find seats together. Signage indicates safe distances in high traffic areas in our busiest stations and onboard leading up to the café car counter, and protective plastic barriers have been installed at customer counters in stations and at countertops in café cars.
