Amtrak May Allow Pets On Board With Pets On Trains Act

Written by Vegetarian Star on Thursday, May 30th, 2013 in Animal Issues, Business, Transportation.


A bill has been introduced in Congress that would allow passengers to take their pets along with them on trains.

The Pets on Trains Act of 2013 or H.R. 2066, which is sponsored by Reps. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., and Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., has already gained the support and praise of the Humane Society of the United States.

Rep. Denham said, “My dog, Lily, is part of our family and travels with us to and from California all the time. If I can take her a on a plane, why can’t I travel with her on Amtrak, too? Allowing families to bring their animals with them will facilitate transportation and efficiency while also providing a much-needed source of revenue for Amtrak.”

Mayim Bialik

“New York and Jerusalem are tied for my favorite city, but I tend to do more family and friends hanging out when I go there, so I don’t know if it feels like a vacation so much. In New York, I eat at as many vegan restaurants as I can. In Jerusalem, I recommend doing everything the tour books tell you to! I don’t tend to go on fancy vacations at all when I’m planning it or paying, but I love camping in the Angeles Crest Forest above Los Angeles and I also love the Julian area inland from San Diego.”

Mayim Bialik, on some of her favorite vacation spots where she’s guaranteed to find good food in addition to a good hotel package. Comfort vegan food is a must have to calm her down on a flight, in addition to lavender essentail oil, ear plugs and her iPod.

Leilani Munter has an Earth Day interview with VegNews magazine, one of the three sponsors behind her new VegNation race car to promote plant-based eating among NASCAR fans and more.

Munter realizes that a job as professional race car driver isn’t the most environmentally friendly one.

But just as the world grows closer and closer to running motorized vehicles on eco-friendly fuel (even those that run at 200 mph), Munter continues to do her part by educating fans of the environment, leaving recycling bins at the track, and of course, adhering to a plant-based diet.
