Pros
Being able to take public transportation from State College to Harrisburg!
Cons
Arriving on time! There were no traffic hold ups and we were still 30 minutes late. Posting WiFi password so the bus driver doesn't need to be interrupted from his job of helping passengers getting on the bus and driving the bus.
Tips
Just that, public transportation is a great way to travel and to consider doing more often.

Although the bus arrived on time, we could not leave for 45 minutes and the driver did not explain why. We were just stuck sitting on the bus for 45 minutes waiting to finally leave.
Tips
Be prepared to have a late bus, or a bus that makes you wait to leave.

This bus COMPLETELY ran out of seats -- 10 people were without seats! It seems that it was due to an Amtrak system issue.

Tips
Drive yourselves or ask me for a ride next time. Everyone on my bus missed our connections. My whole day was ruined & I wasted $119 on kayaking tickets that I did not make because the bus arrived SO late. Also, need WiFi & power outlets

Could not get on the train because it was delayed for too long and I would not have been able to make it to my destination on time. Was very disappointed because the delayed time kept being pushed and even then the train was not coming at the said delayed time.
Tips
I suggest looking for other means of transportation as an alternative (back up plan) in case your travel is time-sensitive like mine was as the train could be delayed longer than you can accommodate.

Pros
Really love traveling by train - great views.
Cons
The wi-fi was useless - I had to use my hotspot on my phone instead. I upgraded to business class, and it was confusing when/where/who/how would get snacks and complementary drinks.
Tips
Upgrading to business class isn't necessary - the seats in the regular cars were plenty spacious and actually looked nicer than those in business class! The snacks and drinks were nice, but not worth the extra $12.

Train was scheduled to leave at 10:23, it was delayed till 12:30. For a same day round trip it was not good.

Resolve train mishaps, breakdowns in a more timely manner.
Tips
Don't go to train station until you check in to see if train is on schedule. Holiday travelling is a hot mess.

Is there WiFi on a Amtrak train?

Yes Amtrak offers WiFi connection onboard their train trips. Though most trips with Amtrak will have WiFi as advertised, some trips might not come equipped with WiFi, and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a film just to play it safe. Amtrak WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends; you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favourite show.

Are there power points on a Amtrak train? Are there USB points?

Yes, there are power points onboard Amtrak train trips. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbour might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power points, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a power point USB converter that typically comes with most phones and tablets. Since Amtrak might sometimes use replacement train vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.

Does Amtrak offer will call tickets, that you pick up at the station?

No, currently Amtrak does not offer will call tickets. You should purchase your tickets online and make sure you have everything you need to board before you arrive at the station or stop.

Do you need an ID to get on a Amtrak train?

Yes, Amtrak requires you to present an ID to an agent to be allowed to board the train. Make sure you have identification issued by a government agency that meets the carrier’s requirements. Alternative IDs, like a university ID, won’t work.

Can you use your phone to board Amtrak?

Yes, you can board Amtrak by showing your E Ticket on your phone. The E Ticket is emailed to when you make your reservation. To save yourself the trouble of digging through your inbox to find your ticket, get the Wanderu app and pull up your ticket with one click.

Are there toilets on Amtrak trains?

Yes, there are toilets on Amtrak train trips. The cubicles are pretty basic and include a toilet, toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Most cubicles don’t have running water. As you will be using a toilet on a moving vehicle, please use caution and hold on to a rail at all times.

Are meals or drinks offered onboard Amtrak trips?

Amtrak provides snacks to satisfy your hunger during your travels. Check with the carrier if snacks are for sale, and pack a credit card and some cash in case you get hungry.

Do you have to print your Amtrak ticket?

Amtrak does not require a printed ticket to board the train. An E Ticket is sent to you by email that you can load on most electronic devices. You will want to have your ticket ready to be displayed as you board for the agent to scan. We recommend you download the Wanderu app, as it gives you super easy access to E Tickets for your upcoming trips for most carriers. As back up, road warriors recommend taking a screenshot of your E Ticket. That way, you won’t be fumbling around in case your internet connection cuts out.

Does Amtrak offer any premium features like extra legroom, films, or TV?

Amtrak goes the extra distance to deliver up-class offerings to its customers. Do you find yourself squished in a regular seat or just love having extra room to sprawl out? Well you’re in luck as Amtrak advertises that they offer extra legroom seating. Since there is no standard of what extra legroom is, the extra space you might get varies from carrier to carrier, but getting extra is always good.
