Amtrak welcomes small dogs and cats aboard rail trips with a few restrictions

Dogs and cats up to 20 pounds (based on the combined weight of the pet and its carrier) are welcome on trips up to seven hours on most Amtrak routes, though some restrictions apply*). The check-in process is simple, making traveling with your four-legged friend easy and enjoyable.

* Only dogs and cats are allowed to travel as pets. Travel with pets in Canada is not available on Adirondack, Maple Leaf and Amtrak Cascades; and travel with pets is not available on Auto Train, San Joaquins or Thruway Connecting Services.

For information on how to make reservations, the fee structure, approved pet carriers, onboard and station guidelines, pet check-in paperwork, pet age and health, and other information, visit the Amtrak website.
