The company will start testing its new pets-on-board policy May 5, allowing travelers to pay a fee of $25 to take their small cats and dogs on board, Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Any pet on the train would need to be able to fit in a 20-pound pet carrier that can be stored under the owner’s seat.
Amtrak will have at least one “pet-free” car per train to accommodate for customers with pet allergies or who prefer to not sit near them.
The test program will take place through Nov. 2.
