Increased Security at Cleveland Amtrak Station

Heightened security measures are in place this week for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, which will also affect the Amtrak station.

Passengers are urged to allow extra time to reach the station due to street closures for security reasons.

Amtrak 4Amtrak said it will have additional personnel on hand during the convention, which wraps up on Thursday night.

Passengers age 16 and over should be prepared to present a valid photo ID to Amtrak personnel or police upon request.

There will be parcel restrictions in downtown Cleveland during this  period and passengers should be ready to provide documentation about their reasons for being in the secured area, such as an eTicket or hotel reservation confirmation, if they are carrying items larger than 18 inches by 13 inches by 7 inches.

Amtrak Police will have an increased presence in Cleveland during the convention.
