PETROLEUM DIRECTORY: Railroad introduces ‘City Ticket Office’

The Alaska Railroad Corporation opened a satellite ticket and information center this summer at the Alaska Public Lands Information Center building located at 605 West 4th Avenue in downtown Anchorage. The Alaska Railroad’s “City Ticket Office,” is made possible through a newly established cooperative agreement with the National Park Service.

“This is a perfect fit for the Alaska Railroad because of the many visitors and residents that are attracted to this venue,” said Susie Kiger, ARRC’s director of markets, sales and service. “After touring the facility and viewing all the great displays, they can then book passage on the Alaska Railroad for a first-hand look at the best this state has to offer.”

The Alaska Railroad’s City Ticket Office will be staffed by an Alaska Railroad employee who can provide tour information and train bookings onsite.

“This new partnership creates a greater awareness of Alaska’s public lands for visitors and residents alike,” noted Alex Carter, director for the Alaska Public Lands Information Center. “We always strive to create enhanced recreational and educational information opportunities and this agreement helps us highlight our state and federal public lands, including national parks.”

The National Park Service operates the Alaska Public Lands Information Center on behalf of nine state and federal public land management agencies.

The ARRC City Ticket Office will be open 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., seven days a week, during the summer. Reservations and ticketing will still be offered at the Anchorage Historic Depot at Ship Creek. More information on tour options and bookings can be found online at www.alaskarailroad.com or by calling (907) 265-2494.
