Amtrak is preparing to make the busy Thanksgiving travel experience more enjoyable for passengers than ever with new, enhanced services and adventures unique to rail travel. Amtrak is now offering, on a pilot basis and just in time for Thanksgiving, the ability to bring pets and bikes onboard. In addition, Amtrak is offering its customers traveling in the Northeast Corridor a new digital newsroom for business and first class passengers.
In anticipation of the busiest travel week of the year, America’s Railroad® is prepared to accommodate the surge of holiday travelers with extra trains and additional capacity on several routes in the Northeast, the Midwest, and the West Coast. Amtrak will also operate every available passenger rail car in its fleet. Tickets sell out quickly so passengers are encouraged to plan ahead and book tickets early for best availability and pricing.
