Amtrak Portland Seattle recent customer reviews

They cancelled the train so we got put onto a bus that was very uncomfortable. There wasn't enough space for my backpack above so I ended up holding it in my lap which killed my legs. It also took about 30-40 minutes longer.

Keith K.1 April 2024

the table in food court need set the limit time for every customer ,some guy using the table longer for the time eat and rest time

Tan N.15 July 2023

Unhappy with how late train was, had plans that were not refundable. Unsure of why train was actually late or how late we would be so I could not update my ride either. A lot of wasted money that I wish I could have avoided
