Google Map Calms Down Anxious Travelers With Real-Time Amtrak Schedules
New tool lets you keep track of over 300 daily trains across the country.
Determined to make it easier to check the status of more than 300 daily trains, Amtrak has teamed up with Google to create an interactive, real-time tool that tracks the progress of trains across the US, and accurately predicts arrival times for those worried about making an important appointment.
The company decided to approach Google with the idea after discovering that checking the status of a train is the second most popular activity on their website, right after buying tickets. Located in the bottom left corner of the Amtrak Website, the map features a clean design and simple user interface.
