TRAVEL WITH PETS ON AMTRAK!
No one gets left behind when you can travel with pets on Amtrak! Thanks to a successful pilot program, Amtrak is welcoming small dogs and cats onboard certain trains making traveling much easier for people with pets.
Of course, there are some restrictions. Pets are welcome in Coach Class only (and must not visit food service cars). They must be at least eight weeks old, weigh 20 lbs. or less, and be odorless, harmless and always be accompanied by a human.
Pets must fit into Amtrak-approved carriers (maximum size 19″ long by 14″ wide by 10.5″ high; hard- or soft-sided but leak-proof and well ventilated) which must be stowed beneath the seat. Pets must be able to sit and lie down in the carrier without touching the carrier’s sides.
