Amtrak: Allow pets to travel on trains with their human companions.

Pets are family members to many of us. As of now, driving a car is the only safe way to travel with pets. We need an alternative to car travel for non-drivers, especially for the elderly who may not be able to manage long road trips.

Many AMTRAK passengers are pet owners. Many pet owners would become AMTRAK passengers if this option was available to them. Railroads are a resource that should be available to people who want to travel with pets.

I am requesting that AMTRAK find a way to allow well-behaved pets to travel on trains with their human companions.

Railroads are a resource that should be available to people who want to travel with pets. I would be willing to form an advisory group to help AMTRAK and its employees find a safe and convenient way to accommodate people traveling with their pets, and pets traveling with their people.
