Reserved Acela Business Class Seating to Begin

Reserved seating in business class aboard Acela trains will begin Aug. 3, Amtrak said.

Until now the only reserved seating aboard Acela trains has been in first class.

The passenger carrier said instituting reserved seating in business class will enable passengers to preview the overall occupancy rate of a train.

Due to social distancing rules, Amtrak is only making available window seats while blocking from sale aisle and rear-facing table seats.

Passengers traveling together may still sit together but must designate reserved seats in other rows.

Amtrak said station and contact-center agents will have the capability to modify seat assignments.

Assigned seating in first class on Acela trains began in 2018.
