Amtrak adds free iPhone app

Posted on August 12, 2011

[IMAGE]Amtrak-full-7.jpg[/IMAGE]Amtrak passengers with iPhones can now plan trips, purchase tickets, modify existing reservations, check train schedules and status, and view station information by using a free Amtrak application (app) now available through iTunes.

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 also 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.
