Amtrak launches free android application

Amtrak now offers a free Android application for passengers to plan and book travel, check train status, show their eTicket, and change reservations instantly from the convenience of any Android device. The app is available through Google Play and Amazon.

Amtrak for Android delivers features similar to those enjoyed by Amtrak for iPhone users, including the ability to buy and have the eTicket delivered directly to their phone – or to cancel or exchange that same ticket. In addition it offers a redesigned purchase flow, new presentation of train status information, and expanded station information.

This app joins and complements the Amtrak for iPhone app, which has been downloaded more than one million times since its launch. The free Amtrak for iPhone App is available at the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at the iTunes store.

In August, Amtrak launched an app for Arrive Magazine, Amtrak’s bimonthly onboard magazine for the Northeast Corridor. The Arrive Magazine app is available in the Google Play, Amazon, and iTunes stores.
