Pacific Surfliners Shift to All Reserved This Week

December 21, 2020

All Amtrak Pacific Surfliner trains will require reservations for travel between Dec. 23 and 28.

In a service advisory Amtrak said a ticket will only be valid on the train on which a passenger holds a reservation.

During this period, multi-ride passengers with a monthly pass or 10-trip ticket must also confirm each trip in advance through the Amtrak RideReserve program.

Travel can be confirmed at Amtrak.com or on the Amtrak app by retrieving a ticket, choosing the date and direction of travel, and selecting “Confirm” on the train you would like to reserve a seat on.

Reservations can also be made by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL or at a staffed Amtrak station.

The Rail2Rail programs (COASTER and Metrolink) will observe a blackout period on the same dates, Dec. 23 through Dec. 28.

Trains will operate on a holiday schedule on Dec. 25 in observance of Christmas Day.
