Fixed Forward and Backward Seating

As of March 2, 2024, all Northeast Corridor (NEC) trains are transitioning to permanent fixed forward and backward seating – including all Northeast Regional service and select routes on the East Coast (the Carolinian, Empire Service, Vermonter and Amtrak Virginia). This arrangement enhances services for customers on the NEC with more frequencies by reducing the time required in between trips.
