Amtrak Eyes Assigned Seating on Trains

Amtrak is considering assigned seats on more of its trains as way to aid in enforcing social distancing during the CVOID-19 pandemic.

The passenger carrier already has assigned seating in first class on Acela Express trains and business class on Northeast Regional trains

“We are working on options to expand assigned seating and reserved travel,” said Amtrak spokesman Jason Abrams.

However, he declined to provide further details about when assigned seating might begin.

Amtrak for a time in the middle 1970s on its trains but the practice was short lived.

It is also common for conductors to assign seats to passengers boarding long-distance trains at some stations.
