The great American train journey speaks to the romance of the traveller’s soul. From the stunning scenery of the Coast Starlight, from Seattle to Los Angeles, to the iconic red rock formations and desert views seen when riding the Southwest Chief. Many an adventurer has experienced great beauty on these epic country-traversing journeys.

Rome2rio is making these journeys that much easier with the introduction of onsite bookings for all Amtrak services within the United States. Powered by SilverRail, the new capability allows Rome2rio users to search for available transport options between locations and then book selected rail segments directly on the Rome2rio website. This service is currently available for customers who are using our mobile web, desktop and tablet products.

We will also help customers who are booking well serviced and travelled routes that include a bus component, such as Los Angeles to Grand Canyon.

If you are considering using Amtrak to travel from Canada from the United States we have you covered – you can input your passport information while making an international rail booking.

The new capabilities have been released as part of our mission to make travel easier for everyone. We will soon be making onsite booking available for Trenitalia and Renfe trains, and National Express. Onsite bookings are also available for UK Rail.

We’d love to know what you think about our booking services and any ways that you think we could improve Rome2rio. Email feedback@rome2rio.com with your suggestions.
