Truckee, California
Not resolved

I called Amtrak customer service to push my return date by two days from Seattle back to Minneapolis. The lady on the phone said a seat was reserved and i have to pay remaining $63 for new date and collect the ticket at the station.

I go to the station and the horrible lady at the counter says i can get my new ticket only if i exchanged the old ticket. she was in no way helpful whatsoever. I was not told to retain the old ticket and that this was an exchange by the customer service. i did not have my old ticket.

I however had the reservation number and payment receipt which were of no use. I ended up buying a new ticket for $200.

Amtrak is just horrible, so the people who work at stations and on the train. Wonder why people choose service industry when they hate people so much.

Nice analogy greg . You Must be proud of yourself for saying that.

I paid for the ride not for a ticket. your comment brought me back here so i can tell the rest of my story.

I thank you for that.

Amtrak actually gave me $200 reduction on my next ride. So I guess it was not so bad considering that I didnot expect anything good out of the situation.


I had the same problem when I tried to get a replacement for a bad television one time. No one told me I had to keep the old television to get a replacement
