That's fantastic! I take Amtrak every now and then. This is a bit more convenient for reservations. Now let's see if Amtrak can get ApplePay on the train itself.

I'm seeing more and more websites and apps take Apple Pay and using Apple Pay online is so convenient. Love not having to type in credit card details, not having to worry about the website (Amtrak or otherwise) safely storing my card info, and love that I can verify the purchase on my Apple Watch!

That will probably need reliable network connectivity on the trains themselves (for the POS systems, anyway). More than once, I've ridden the Pacific Surfliner--which has Wi-Fi, mind you--and have seen charges for the cafe car not actually happen until the next day.

However, NFC for the ticket kiosks would be nice.
