WASHINGTON, D.C. — Amtrak will start on Thursday charging $20 to passengers who exceed limits for carry-on and personal items, CNBC reported.
Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said the fees will help enforce the company's established polices, preserve space on crowded trains and reduce safety concerns created by items that are too heavy, the report said.
Customers are allowed to bring for free two personal items weighing up to 25 pounds and two carry-on bags weighing no more than 50 pounds each. The fee applies to each item above those limits, according to CNBC.
