I love Amtrak. Customer service is incredible. Passenger service on the trains is wonderful.
The Amazon app lets you check on train status and even book a ticket to any part of the US.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs to use local storage April 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
This app is pretty good at what it does (schedules, train status, ticketing), but only if you're actually connected online. If you're an Amtrak train rider, you know how awful the WiFi is aboard, so guess what? The app on my tablet is useless.

Conductor guy is coming around to check tickets. You open up the app to get your ticket which you just saw while at home. * bam * Not happening if you're not online.

Can somone re-write the app so tickets are stored locally on the device? Or at least so the user has the option of saving the ticket locally. Saving selected schedules would be nice also.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for Kindle 8.9 HD Fire March 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
Being an Amtrak traveler, I was so looking forward to using this app. As I understand, you would be able to bring up your electronic ticket and have it scanned onboard. (Would be great if lost your ticket inroute). I purchased this app ($0.00) but it would not download to my Kindle 8.9 HD Fire. After calling Amazon, they determined it was not compatible with my Kindle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useful only to confirm schedules if I already had them February 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
I wanted to see about a trip between cities via train. I understand that trains do not run everyday, but when I input the date I'd like to ride, this app says 'too bad, not today, try another day.'

A good app would provide alternate dates. Or show a calendar so I could look at the days of the week the dates fell upon. In short, it could provide information I've come to expect from travel apps generally.

As it is, uninstall the app, grab a sheet of paper, and hit a web-browser. It will be less frustrating.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT all aboard! November 7, 2012
By Bernie
Verified Purchase
I used the app to plan a trip from the station nearest my home to Denver, CO. I found it necessary to guess an intermediate stop and plan a leg of the trip from my home station to the intermediate stop, then take my arrival time and plan a departure from the intermediate stop to Denver. Perhaps this was to allow me time at my intermediate stop, but I was never given the opportunity to indicate I wanted to travel straight through as much as possible. Unhappily, this is the same experience I encountered earlier when going to the Amtrak website. The app did, however, make suggestions for alternative departures from Chicago to Denver.
