Conductors may check anyone’s government-issued photo ID and ticket. At the discretion of the Federal Transportation Security Administration (TSA), police officers may conduct random passenger ticket and identification checks on board trains. Security policies also require that all carry-on baggage be visibly tagged with your name and address.

Please report any unmarked or unattended items or suspicious activity immediately to the conductor, station agent, or train crew. In the event of an emergency notify a member of the train crew, contact the Amtrak Police Department at 800-331-0008 (or text APD11), or call 911.
