WASHINGTON – Amtrak passengers can now plan trips, purchase tickets, modify existing reservations, check train schedules and status, and view station information from the convenience of an i-Phone with the free Amtrak application (app) now available through i-Tunes.
The new app provides quick, convenient and on-the-go Amtrak travel planning and organization. Customers can purchase one-way and round-trip tickets that can be printed at a Quik-Trak machine, picked up from an agent or mailed. Passengers will be able to access the latest train arrival and departure information for their itinerary.
Customers can use the app to show the nearest station to their current location and obtain addresses, directions, amenities and hours. Users will be able to use their Amtrak.com account to see all trips booked and modify existing reservations including changing dates or trains and upgrading seats.
Amtrak customers can also utilize the entertaining “Passport” feature to share their travels on Facebook or Twitter.
Customers using other web-enabled mobile devices can access the Amtrak mobile website at m.amtrak.com. This site provides features available on Amtrak.com in a mobile-friendly format.
