Pre-Departure Tips

Heartland Flyer

To ensure a smooth journey, it’s advisable to arrive at the station at least 30 minutes before your scheduled departure. This allows ample time to manage any unforeseen delays and to settle in comfortably. Both the Fort Worth and Oklahoma City stations offer parking facilities for your convenience.  


Traveling with Children

Families with young children will find the Heartland Flyer accommodating, though there are specific guidelines to keep in mind. Child car seats cannot be secured to any seats on board Amtrak trains or buses. If you're traveling with an infant or small child in a car seat, you can place the seat in a vacant seat nearby. Children under two years old may need to ride on the passenger’s lap, with the car seat stored in an appropriate baggage area.
