Amtrak riders can bypass ticket lines and have electronic tickets emailed to their mobile devices.
Riders can go directly to their train’s gate and show the conductor the e-ticket on their mobile device. Riders also can print out a PDF of their e-ticket from a computer or at an Amtrak Quik-Trak kiosk.
Amtrak’s e-ticket option is available on all of its national train routes, Amtrak spokesperson Christina Leeds says.
Amtrak introduced e-tickets in November 2011 as a pilot program on its Downeaster route from Boston to Portland, Maine.
