How do I choose my seat?

Hi - I just purchased a ticket, but there was no section in which to choose my seat. I will be traveling with 2 of my friends, so I want to make sure we are seated together. Thanks!

  • When my husband and I booked, we found the same thing and when I looked at our actual ticket we are seated three rows apart. Glad it isn't a long trip!

      Hi Shelley,

      If you booked for the two of you together in the same order, and there was sufficient availability on the train, you should have been placed seated together. If it ended up that you were seated apart from one another, there must not have been two seats together still available on the train you requested. If you wish, you can try requesting new seats at the station before you board. Otherwise, you can ask other passengers to switch with you after you’ve boarded. Although there is no guarantee, you would find that other passengers would be willing to switch with you in many instances.

    Hi Anjali,

    For orders placed through our website, there is no way to request the specific location and arrangement of seats. However, passengers in a party would be automatically booked together (as long as they have been booked together in the same order and the availability on the train allows for it). If you ever wish to request a specific type of seating arrangement, then you would call us at 1-800-622-8600 to place your order. Even if you call, please note that we would only be able to make some general requests (such as for window seats or aisle seats), and we can only do so on certain trains.
