Here’s a breakdown of the top reasons to ride Amtrak’s Auto Train between Virginia and Florida:

  1. The train features wide, reclining seats with ample legroom and no middle seat. Private rooms are also available which include two seats that convert into bunk beds for your overnight adventure.
  2. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served with a variety of entrée selections.
  3. No need to pause your adventure for pit stops, rest stops, food, lodging or to fill up the gas tank. 
  4. A la carte travel products on demand: Beekman shampoos, lotions, body wash, toothpaste and more. 
  5. Free Wi-Fi

And here’s why we call it the Auto Train:  This incredibly unique service allows you to take cars, small boats, jet skis, vans, SUVs, trucks and motorcycles with you on your way to that dream vacay in Florida.

Book Priority Vehicle Offloading for an additional fee to make the vehicle one of the first 30 to exit the train.
