Amtrak Showing Real Time Capacity

Amtrak this week updated its website and mobile applications to allow passengers to view how full at train is at the time they are making a reservation for travel.

Passengers will see a passenger volume percentage next to each route that represents the proportion of seats sold based on the total number of seats available on a train.

This feature provides the option to book a route that is less crowded.

In a news release announcing the new feature Amtrak noted that it is limiting capacity of its trains in order to promote social distancing practices during the COVID-19 pandemic.
