Va-NYC --Not bad but no security!

by , Jul 20, 2012 Rated a Very Helpful Review
Took an Amtrak from Williamsburg, VA to NYC. The trip was not too bad.  We traveled coach and sometimes some annoying people sat near us that were loud but it is easy to ignore. There is free wifi and we brought a small laptop to watch movies ...

Corporate rip-off", horrible customer service, meaningless schedules, hidden penalty fees, Worst way to travel.

If you want a relaxing, cheap, friendly travel experience, DON'T TAKE AMTRAK.  I ended up paying three times my original price, for a round trip, because if you need a later departure time than you reserved, they also cancel and sell back the same ...

Amtrak; The Easy Way To Make Reservations

by , Oct 25, 2006 Rated a Very Helpful Review
Amtrak is a better option to non-air travel than going by bus. I won't ever make the mistake of taking to the road by bus instead of rail ever again. Buses aren't as comfortable and have much less legroom. You don't have to drive or worry as much about ...

I decided to splurge and try a sleeper room on an overnight, one-way trip from Oregon to (Sacramento) California. The Coast Starlight is notorious for being late and you always have to call beforehand. It wasn't that bad, as the train left about 11:30, ...
