OLYMPIA — Holiday travel will be a little easier with the addition of four Amtrak Cascades trains this week.
Amtrak will add two extra round trips between Portland and Seattle to accommodate the travel demand during the Christmas holiday week. The extra Amtrak Cascades trains will operate Thursday, Dec. 23 and Sunday, Dec. 26.
Amtrak Cascades provides travelers with a car-free, relaxing alternative to getting to those holiday gatherings – and with more trains than usual this week, more choices are available.
Regular one-way adult fares between Seattle and Portland start as low as $30, but seats are filling fast. All Amtrak Cascades trains require reservations, and passengers are encouraged to purchase tickets early to obtain the lowest fares. Visit www.AmtrakCascades.com, or call 1-800-USA-RAIL for reservations and information.
Amtrak Cascades operates three daily round trips between Portland and Seattle; one daily round trip between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C., and one between Portland and Vancouver, B.C.; and daily service between Eugene and Seattle, via Portland. Amtrak Cascades is operated by Amtrak in partnership with the Washington and Oregon Departments of Transportation. For Amtrak Cascades fares and schedules, visit AmtrakCascades.com.
