Business Traveler (USA) - - UPFRONT -

OVER THE COURSE of the next ten months, Am­trak is in­vest­ing $4 mil­lion re­fresh­ing its pre­mier Acela Ex­press trains. The up­grades will in­clude new car­pet­ing, seat cush­ions and seat cov­ers on all 100 Acela train cars, as well as giv­ing each car a deep clean.

The first of the re­fur­bished trains are al­ready in ser­vice, with oth­ers rolling out on a monthly ba­sis un­til March 2019. The re­fresh is an in­terim step as the rail ser­vice’s en­tire fleet of ex­ist­ing Acela Ex­press trains is ex­pected to be re­placed by 2022. Am­trak will test out a next-gen­er­a­tion pas­sen­ger train car be­gin­ning in 2019.
