Reserved Business Class seating is the minimum class of service on Acela Express and is offered as an upgrade on many of our short / medium-distance trains. If you've never upgraded to Business Class on Amtrak, you might be surprised at how affordable it is.
With spacious, comfortable seats, you can fold down your extra-large tray table, plug in to an at-seat power outlet and get to work. Or recline, stretch out your legs and take a much needed break. You'll also be able to enjoy a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage when the train is equipped with a food service car.
All Business Class passengers can purchase daily access passes for the ClubAcela locations at Philadelphia - 30th Street Station and Boston - South Station for $20.00 per day. Speak with a uniformed employee at the station for more information.
