You can buy online at, at Ticket Kiosk self-ticketing kiosks, or from an agent at staffed stations. Tickets can also be purchased directly from your Smart Phone.

Please be mindful that this will be an extremely busy travel weekend. As a courtesy to other passengers, please store your carry-on baggage in the luggage racks, overhead bins, or on the floor under your seat to keep seats open for riders during this busy time.
