Business Class Seat

Enjoy the exclusive amenities that come with traveling in Business Class — a premium, enhanced experience offered on most corridor services across the Amtrak system. Specific features vary by route, but Business Class includes extra legroom, a wide and comfortable seat, and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages (not offered in Acela Business Class). On many routes in the Northeast, seat selection is offered, providing a more seamless boarding experience and taking the guesswork out of finding a seat. Additionally, Business Class customers receive a 25% bonus on Amtrak Guest Rewards points.

Seat Orientation

Many of the routes within our network, including the Northeast Regional and Carolinian, feature fixed forward and backward seating. Passengers traveling in Business Class can change their seats once their reservation is complete. The ability to select seat orientation is subject to availability. 

Traveling with Car Seats

Child car seats cannot be secured to any seats onboard Amtrak trains or buses. Passengers traveling with an infant/small child in a child car seat may place the seat in a vacant seat only if it is not needed for a paying passenger; children under 2 years of age may be required to ride on the passenger’s lap and the child car seat stored in an appropriate baggage area.

Devices with Sound

We ask that all passengers use earphones or headphones for sound-emitting devices.
