As of March 1, 2023 Amtrak Coach passengers now will have ability to access to the Dining car for first time since COVID 19 Pandemic that was previously eliminated. Some detailed information below will explain more and how it works.
This week, Amtrak is once again allowing coach passengers to enjoy its “traditional dining” service on long-distance trains across the west. It is the first time coach riders will be able to enjoy dinner in the diner since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The dining car will be open to all on the California Zephyr, Coast Starlight, Empire Builder, Southwest Chief and Sunset Limited trains.
Breakfast – $20 per passenger
Lunch – $25 per passenger
Dinner – $45 for Three Course Meal (It comes with Entrée, Dinner, Dessert and drinks included)
The bottom line: ONLY 16 Coach Passengers will be allowed per meal service. The reason of this they want to have enough room for Sleeping Car passengers to access the Dining Car.
