Extra Amtrak Railcars Onboard for Thanksgiving Travel

By , in PR PR Los Angeles on .

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 8, 2017 — In anticipation of the busiest travel week of the year, Amtrak is prepared to accommodate the surge of holiday travelers with extra equipment and additional capacity on the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner route, which travels between San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo. Tickets sell out quickly, so customers are encouraged to plan ahead and book early.

As space is limited on Pacific Surfliner trains during the holidays, a reservation will be required to travel between Nov. 22 and Nov. 26, 2017. Additionally, the Rail 2 Rail program will be suspended during this time, and Metrolink and COASTER passes will not be accepted onboard Pacific Surfliner trains. Last year, Amtrak carried 760,755 customers throughout its national network during the Thanksgiving travel period. Similar customer counts are anticipated this year.
