Accessibility Comments: 

The Amtrak app has some accessibility issues, particularly in terms of unlabeled buttons in the reservation booking area of the app. Parts of the app, including the train status feature, are very usable however.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

Other Comments: 

This app is very useful for checking train status. However, for booking trips, I would still recommend using the main Amtrak website or calling a reservations agent.
