SIMS Communications, Inc. announced Tuesday that the Company’s prepaid phone card agreement with Amtrak has been expanded to include four additional train stations. Travelers can purchase custom designed Amtrak phone cards now, available from SIMS’ vending machines located in Amtrak’s Portland, OR; Eugene, OR; and Seattle, WA train stations and, later this summer, at Santa Barbara CA. The Amtrak series of collectible phone cards are available in $10 and $20 denominations.
SIMS also announced the second in a limited edition series of phone cards commemorating Amtrak trains. This latest card depicts the Amtrak Cascades trains inaugurated this month. These sleek, modern, European-style trains feature a distinctive evergreen and cappuccino color scheme and sport unique seven-foot tail fins. The Amtrak Cascades trains use pendular train technology and tilt to travel through curves and maintain speed. This results in reduced travel times while maintaining passenger comfort. Last fall Amtrak and SIMS Communications, Inc., partnered to create the first Amtrak calling card featuring The Coast Starlight.
The Cascades card currently may be purchased from vending machines at Amtrak stations located in San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, Oakland, Bakersfield, Fresno, Emeryville, Anaheim, and Stockton, California; Eugene, Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington and through Amtrak’s merchandise order line at 800-400-1229.
Amtrak is the nation’s intercity passenger railroad and operates in more than 500 communities around the country.
