Watch: Amtrak Is Redesigning Their Interiors

+ more

Amtrak is investing in an extensive refresh of its train interiors for their Acela Express fleet. They’re looking for a more modern and comfortable customer experience. The program is expected to take 14-month for all of its 20 trainsets, which includes 100 Amtrak cars and 6,080 total seats.

New cushions and covers will be installed for all business class and first-class seats, as well as new carpet for the aisle runners and a deep clean. But don’t worry, Amtrak schedules will not change during the process. Materials from the existing Acela cushions, covers, and leather will be recycled and turned into consumer goods.
