Can my child ride the train without adult supervision?

Children 16 and older can travel unaccompanied without restriction, but must have valid photo identification when purchasing tickets and when on board the train or when riding buses. Children 13, 14, and 15 years old may only ride unaccompanied in accordance with the conditions of Amtrak’s Unaccompanied Minor Policy. If your child is 12 years old or younger, they are not permitted to travel alone and must be accompanied by an adult who is at least 18 years old.
