Amtrak today began offering new digital payment options on its mobile application and website, including Apple Pay, Google Pay and PayPal.

The new options will provide alternatives to traditional credit and debit card payments.

"We know every minute counts for our customers and now purchasing tickets is as simple as the touch of a button," said Roger Harris, Amtrak's executive vice president and chief marketing and revenue officer, in a press release. "These updates to the Amtrak app and website will offer customers enhanced flexibility and convenience as they book and pay for train tickets."

Recently, Amtrak also introduced a capacity indicator to display the number of passengers on each train and deployed departure information on the mobile app to improve trip planning.
