Amtrak California updates Website

Posted on November 29, 2010

The California Department of Transportation recently recreated, redesigned and re-launched its AmtrakCalifornia.com Website. The new streamlined site invites users to easily navigate destinations, book travel and much more.

The travel-friendly Website is loaded with features including an enhanced station directory using powerful search technology capabilities and an interactive map to locate train stations near specified destinations. To promote travel on Amtrak California's Pacific Surfliner and San Joaquin routes, the site also showcases key destinations to assist with vacation ideas and trip planning.

Travelers can create and customize an account with "My Amtrak California" to find stations, personalize favorite pages and links and receive notification of hot deals and promotions. Booking travel is simple with online train and Amtrak California connecting bus schedules.

As an added convenience, AmtrakCalifornia.com links directly to the Amtrak Guest Rewards program where passengers can sign up to earn points toward free travel and more.

Meanwhile, news and updates provide timely information regarding station openings, rail construction projects, as well as alerting customers to service disruptions that may affect travel.
