Amtrak company goes to great extent to protect their reputation and unprofessional staff re:sexist and racist issues. Health officials need to get involved with unfit restroom conditions. Having a bad experience with a unprofessional desk clerk and he continued with a 22" measuring stick to measure my 2 within limit and weight luggage, the clerk stated my 2 luggage was overlimit which I left 1...

As first time Amtrak traveller, we travelled from Topeka to Forth Madison,Iowa (November 2013) and not familiar with small town disembarkment was told the conductor would let us know when to disembark. However we got three messages within 5 minutes over the intercom to disembark and was trying to do so but had to walk through three cars to get to a door that would be close to the platform. Upon...

Terrible weather yesterday, Jan. 5. Called Amtrak multiple times regarding train 306 from Alton to Chicago. We were assured it was running on time. Went out on roads against all recommendations, and arrived at 6:14 to see train there. Son was told he couldn't board train, as it was the earlier train (that was almost 3 hours late), and his train was supposedly 10 minutes behind. (There was... Read more

I generally like Amtrak and accept that a lot of the late arrivals are beyond their control. However, I think they could do a much better job of training their employees in the very basics of customer service. At DC, the Club Acela employees were among the worst I've experienced on the entire Amtrak system (and I've logged over 20,000 miles on both their short and long distance routes, so I know...

I travel on Amtrak roundtrip from Portland to Whitefish Mt. 75-80 times a year for my work in Oregon. Travel from Whitefish to Portland has been canceled a few times, and they are consistently 2-4 hrs late. Their prices have risen and many times rise at the last minute. I use the rewards program which helps, but at holidays they tend to have lots of Black-out dates. Their workers especially on... Read more

  • Horrible Redund Policy
  • 17

They continue to change contract (verbal and written) and policies after already holding my funds. When they initially obtained my funds, the policy as Id known it up until that point was: if I didn't travel I was not charged or was automatically issued a refund. Then when new policies were written no staff was sure when they went into effect, if they were in effect or if there was a grace period... Read more

On several occasions now I have ridden Amtrak only to have it stop for hours somewhere down the rails. One time the train in question did not have proper brakes. This was discovered only after we left the station. The conductor then had us stopped for hours. On another occasion there were problems with the actual engines. This time I didn't get home until 4 hours after my scheduled arrival time.... Read more

When I went to Amtrak to purchase my round trip tickets, I was told a much higher price to ride that day then there was on the Amtrak website. I was told by the ticket seller that for that ride it would be more because there more riders on that train. If Amtrak does not go by the ticket prices on their website, then why post them at all. I then had to make sure that I had a returning ticket... Read more

Mr. Boardman, I am a service connected disable vet. Vietman 1965. Until a recent experience with Amtrak, I would have recommended it highly to anyone and did so. In July of this year, I made reservations with Amtrak for a trip to Montreal. The agent offered to handle all travel needs including layover hotels in New York City and Montreal. The train part was good. One exception was that the... Read more
