Accommodations Offerings for the Palmetto
The Amtrak Palmetto is the only long-distance train not offering sleeper accommodations because it does not run overnight.
The Palmetto coach seating features comfortable reclining seats with ample legroom, a fold-down tray, individual reading lights, and 120v electric outlets.
Business class is in a separate car, behind the cafe car, and the passenger gets 25% more points.
Bikes, pets, and luggage
Bicycle – Space is available for standard, full-size bicycles (up to 50 lbs, 70 inches x 41 inches x 8.5 inches). Amtrak stores bikes in designated bike racks/areas inside Coach passenger cars or the baggage car (if available).
Pet – Amtrak allows dogs and cats up to 20 pounds (combined weight of pet and carrier) for trips up to seven hours.
Amtrak offers Wi-Fi free of charge that supports general web browsing activities. Due to limited bandwidth onboard the trains, our Wi-Fi does not support high-bandwidth actions such as streaming music, streaming video, or downloading large files.
Checked Baggage – Two bags up to 50 lbs. and 75 linear inches are allowed per person for free. Charges apply for additional and oversized luggage. Not all locations can handle checked baggage. Click the station links below to see if they offer checked baggage service.
