SEATTLE – To accommodate travel demand during the Thanksgiving holiday week, Amtrak will add four trains along the Amtrak Cascades route between Portland and Seattle. The extra Amtrak Cascades trains will operate on Wednesday, Nov. 27 AND Sunday, Dec. 1. 


Thanksgiving week is typically Amtrak’s busiest travel period of the year. The heaviest travel days are Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving and Sunday after the holiday. With the exception of Thanksgiving Day, morning trains typically have more available seats than those in the afternoon and evening.

Regular one-way adult fares between Seattle and Portland start as low as $33. All Amtrak Cascades trains require reservations and passengers are encouraged to purchase tickets early to obtain the lowest fare. The additional trains will not have business class or checked baggage.

Amtrak Cascades service is operated by Amtrak and funded by the Washington and Oregon departments of transportation. Visit www.AmtrakCascades.com or call 800–USA–RAIL for reservations and information.
