Boston's subway (the "T") has a pet friendly pet policy. According to their website, www.mbta.com, "Service animals are allowed on the T at all times. During off-peak hours, non-service dogs are allowed at the discretion of T vehicle operators. Dogs must be properly leashed and are not allowed to annoy riders or take up a seat. For safety and convenience during rush hours, small domestic animals must be carried in lap-sized containers and kept clear of exits."
Alaska Railroad allows pets on its route between Fairbanks in the north and Seward in the south, with scheduled stops at Denali, Talkeetna, Wasilla, Girdwood, Whittier, Portage, Spencer and Grandview. Pets ride in airline compliant kennels in the baggage car which is not air conditioned or heated, so you want to be careful of when you are traveling. You can take your pets outside during stops, but they are brief. Fee is $20. More details at alaskarailroad.com. Maybe Amtrak will take notice!
