Travel with Ease this Thanksgiving on Amtrak

Book now for the best schedule availability

WASHINGTON – Amtrak is encouraging customers to book now for what is expected to be a busy Thanksgiving travel season. Instead of sitting in traffic or a middle seat, customers can ride in comfort and celebrate this holiday with ease.

To accommodate more in-person events and same-day travel, Amtrak is adding more service on Thanksgiving morning and will increase the number of trains operating from Nov.18 – 28. Customers can also take advantage of additional service in the Northeast, Virginia, and between Portland, Ore., and Seattle – plus newly restored service for those traveling to and from Vancouver and Toronto.

Shopping and buying tickets is fast and easy on, our mobile app, our new ticketing kiosks, staffed stations or by calling 800-USA-RAIL. Passengers can also connect directly with customer service representatives via social media:

  • Follow @Amtrak on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to connect with customer service and receive the latest news including sales and updates on new offerings
  • We encourage customers to share Amtrak experiences on all social media by tagging @Amtrak and using the hashtag #Amtrak in posts
  • On Twitter follow @AmtrakNECAlerts for real-time service information on the Northeast Region (including Boston-New York-Washington) and follow @AmtrakAlerts for real-time service information on long distance, Pacific Northwest and Amtrak Midwest trains
