Our Leather Seats are Starting a New Journey


After thousands of miles on our trains, 6,000+ seats are starting a new journey.

We updated the interior of our Acela trains and have partnered with People for Urban Progress (PUP) to upcycle our leather seats into a new line of adventure-ready products. People for Urban Progress is a nonprofit that recycles materials and makes sustainable products for everyday use. PUP products are now redeemable with Amtrak Guest Rewards points and are for purchase on the PUP website. View our small batches of hand-built Amtrak goods.
