Logo   Amtrak Acela Express Trains
Amtrak's fast and comfortable Acela Express trains connect New York City, the Connecticut Shoreline, Providence RI and Boston MA with a few more stops along the route.



Acela Express is the faster, more comfortable, more expensive type of Amtrak train traveling between Boston (South Station) and New York City (Penn Station) in about 3-1/2 hours, then continuing to Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington DC.

In Business Class you get a big, comfortable seat with electrical outlet, large tray table, adjustable lighting, and a refreshments cart or café car with bar service.

In First Class, hot towels, newspapers, beverages, meals (breakfast, lunch or dinner) served at your seat, and access to the ClubAcela Lounges in train stations (including Boston's South Station and New York City's Penn Station) are all included in your train fare.

There is no Coach Class on Acela Express, only Business Class and First Class.
