- Amtrak Arrow Reservation System
Amtrak's Arrow Reservation System is used nationally in the
United Statesby Amtrak employees to take reservations, check train status, and monitor Amtrakequipment throughout the convert|30000|mi of the Amtrak network. Arrow was created in the 1980s to make Amtrak's reservation taking more simple. Presently, Arrow development is done in-house by Amtrak developers.
The Arrow application is similar to most major airline reservation system and runs on
IBM Transaction Processing Facilitysystem. The system is used directly by Amtrak employees and travel agents. The system is also the basis for the Amtrak.com and Quik-Trak reservations.
August 26, 2007, the system was the victim of a major power outage at the data center. This impacted Amtrak nationwide. All Amtrak agents were forced to hand-write tickets, and were unable to use the system for any other purposes.
