Reserved Coach Class Seat

Reserved Coach Seat

Advance reservations (by train, not by individual seat) are required. Short / medium-distance trains and single-level / Viewliner trains offer reserved coach seating featuring wide comfortable seats with fold down trays and many other amenities.

Famous for the bi-level sleeping cars, the Superliner trains also offer coach seats on both levels. While most passengers ride in the upper level for a panoramic view of the passing scenery, the lower level coach seats provide convenience:

  • well-appointed restrooms within the car and
  • accessible seating for passengers with mobility impairments.

Passenger Comfort Kits that include an inflatable pillow, earplugs, blanket, and eye shade can be purchased for $8 from the Lounge or Café car while traveling on overnight trains.  The practice of providing mini-pillows has been discontinued for Coach class passengers, effective August 1, 2013.
