Business travel is about convenience, cost and availability. In each of those areas, Acela is the clear choice. Premium hourly service is available between New York and Washington, giving you plenty of options and plenty of seats from which to choose.
You will also realize substantial savings over airline travel. Acela offers "door to door" service from the heart of one city to the heart of another, so there is no need to take a taxi to and from the airport - we go where you want to go.
When you add it all up, Acela just makes sense.
