Finally, Amtrak has introduced eTicketing. Train travelers can now purchase their Amtrak tickets online, as usual, but they can now print their eTickets at their own convenience as well. No more waiting in line at the ticketing office or the kiosk! Just print at home and head to the platform.
Even better, if you have a smart phone or tablet, you can either display the ticket to the conductor on the Amtrak iPhone app or as a PDF. Just like mobile boarding passes at airports, this could save travelers plenty of time and sometimes be a savior if you happen to forget your printed tickets at home.
Don’t forget, Amtrak is a transfer partner of the Chase Ultimate Rewards program. One of the best values is a one-way ticket in the Northeast Corridor (Boston to DC and everywhere in between) for only 4,000 points.
