Important too complicated get me a live agents

It is about upgrading my return trip to a Roomette because I am a senior 83 years old with certain difficulties and when I was sold a ticket on coach I was not told that in order for me to get any services I have to climb back-and-forth stairs consistently for the last for five days because the train was terribly delayed and I became sick I lost like 3 to 4 days of my vacation I still cant hardly walk or move so I need somebody to make arrangements for my return in August 30 or later. Initially when I realize the problem I tried to upgrade it in Chicago in Denver it was refused. definitely accommodate me

Amtrak is completely worthless. I've been trying for two days to book a one-way trip from Eugene, OR, to Bellingham, WA. On their website, I select segment 1 (Eugene to Seattle), which it accepts. But when I select segment 2 (Seattle to Bellingham), it just returns me...

To complain it was the worst trip ever a ride from Chicago to Ann Arbor took 10 hours instead of 5 the train left. Chicago at 1:25 and broke down in Hammond Indiana for 2 hours until the 3:59 train came with an engine to help us get moving I missed all the family graduation the party everything. was over. The train was hot they gave us water which was hot and snack packs . The staff was very apologetic but I fault the company old people like me love the train I am 65 and have only have sight in one eye because of an injury. Please contact me

To find the amount of a round-trip from Baltimore Maryland to Los Angeles California and back

Havent heard anything , Left a message with my request for knowledge about a round-trip ticket and havent heard anything in almost 2 hours. If I dont hear tomorrow I guess I will try again. Its very hard to make a planned trip when nobody gets back to you

User's recommendation: Keep trying, a human Has to be involved somewhere along the line.

Absolutely terrible website.

I want to know the regular train times, when they leave, on what days, and then try to figure a travel schedule from that. Can't do that as you have to put in travel dates to get any info. Maybe I'm missing something, but if I am, its because they are making it very difficult to find.

User's recommendation: Good luck.

What I paid for

I need to talk to a human

I don't recall that I made a complaint. My experience with Amtrak was excellent. Once I was able to speak to an agent, my trip plans we're made quickly and efficiently. The agent was very pleasant. The only issue I had was that I was on hold for approximately 35 minutes. That can be frustrating, but in my situation, I did other business while waiting for my call to be answered. It was worth the wait because I was unable to navigate the trip planning online. ismfrustrating

User's recommendation: Be prepared to be put on hold. If you expect an immediate answer, you may be frustrated.
