You may have taken a trip on the Pacific Surfliner, but have you ever tried riding in Business Class? Treat yourself to an upgraded experience with a few extra perks.
The Pacific Surfliner unreserved Coach seats are already spacious, but the Business Class car has even more legroom so you can really stretch and relax. Even better, Business Class riders are guaranteed a seat, which is helpful especially on busy trains which could be standing room only during parts of the trip. And because it’s located at one end of the train, there tends to be less foot-traffic in Business Class, resulting in a more private atmosphere.
Snacks and Drinks
We have a great Café Car with fresh food, craft beers, cocktails and more available for purchase. In the Business Class car, riders can also enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks. Each morning, there is coffee, tea, water and juice, as well as pastries from a local bakery. In the afternoons, riders receive a snack pack as well as a soft drink or glass of wine! Our new snack pack comes in a nice box, with sea salt pita chips, hummus, trail mix, chocolate chip cookies and a mint taffy!
Business Class also has a dedicated attendant on most trains, who can answer questions and assist with luggage. There are also free newspapers, and just like the rest of the train, free Wi-Fi.
The perks of Business Class extend beyond the train, starting at the moment you book your trip. Amtrak Guest Rewards members (who earn points with each Amtrak trip they take), get a 25% qualifying point bonus when booking in Business Class. Create an account and start collecting points for a free trip or other rewards.
Not only that, but Business Class passengers starting or ending in Los Angeles get special access to the Amtrak Metropolitan Lounge, located at the station on the second floor. It has complimentary coffee, tea, soft drinks and snacks. Relax on the comfy sofas, watch some TV, read a newspaper or use the free Wi-Fi!
