Previously, only service animals were allowed on Amtrak Cascades trains. Due to the sensitivity of other passengers, dogs and cats must meet the following requirements:
- The maximum weight including the carrier is limited to 20 pounds
- Owners can reserve a space for their pet for a $25 fee; limit one pet per passenger.
- For the safety and comfort of all passengers, pets must remain in a carrier at all times and carriers must remain on the floor in front of the seat next to the passenger
- The maximum carrier size is 19 inches long, 14 inches wide, and 10.5 inches high
- Five pet spots are allowed per train and are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis
