Advance reservations (by train, not by individual seat) are required. Short / medium-distance trains and single-level / Viewliner trains offer reserved coach seating featuring wide comfortable seats with fold down trays and many other amenities.

Passenger Comfort Kits that include an inflatable pillow, earplugs, blanket, and eye shade can be purchased for $8 from the Lounge or Café car while traveling on overnight trains. In advance of travel, passengers can purchase the kits for $15 (including shipping) at Amtrak Store. The practice of providing mini-pillows has been discontinued for Coach class passengers, effective August 1, 2013.
