Traveling by Rail

When traveling to destinations such as New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington DC, Amtrak offers quick and convenient service from South Station and Back Bay as well as Rte. 128.

Harvard travelers are expected to purchase the lowest available fare that offers reserved seating. For regular Amtrak service that would be reserved Coach Class. For Acela Express Trains that class of service would be Business Class.

For rail travel over six hours, first class seating is reimbursable. For most international rail travel, reserved seating is only available in first class.
