Amtrak statement on security

Amtrak has a robust security program every day of the year. For major holidays we often provide an increased police presence at stations and on board trains frequently in coordination with our local, state and federal law enforcement partners.  Passengers may also see K-9 explosive detection teams at some locations and may experience random baggage screenings at select stations.

Amtrak operates in 46 states and serves over 500 stations. We carried a record 28.7 million passengers last fiscal year.
