Sleeping Accommodations on Long-Distance Train Routes
Sleeping accommodations are available on most long-distance routes. Amtrak trains traveling on long-distance routes typically use either two-level Superliner or one-level Viewliner train car equipment, each of which include bedrooms arranged in various configurations and private and public bathrooms and showers.

Single-level Viewliner sleeping cars have two rows of windows per room and are on trains that travel to/from New York City, while bi-level Superliner sleeping cars are used for many other routes across the country.

Frequently Asked Questions
Most sleeping car rooms are designed to comfortably accommodate two averaged-sized adults, one in each berth. Some rooms can accommodate more. On Superliner trains, for example, Family Bedrooms are designed to accommodate two adults and two children. Bedrooms (not Roomettes, Family Bedrooms or Accessible Bedrooms) can be combined to create Bedroom Suites. In addition, lower berths in all Bedrooms (but not Roomettes) can accommodate two small adults or children, allowing up to three to share a room.
The purchase of sleeping accommodations is considered to be an upgrade to your regular rail fare. The charge is applied as an add-on, usually to the lowest rail fare available. When you share a sleeper, you will be charged only one accommodation charge for all parties sharing the sleeping accommodation. Each passenger pays regular rail fare.
Sleeping car accommodation charges vary according to customer demand. In general, we suggest you book early to get the best price.
