To get to PHL from Elizabethtown, I paid cash, whereas the Star trip I used AGR points. I noticed that on 664, I have a reserved coach seat. The portion of the Keystones from Harrisburg to PHL has always been “unreserved.” I’m assuming this is because of COVID-19? How does the seating work with the social distancing?

“Reserved” only means you have a reservation, not necessarily a specific seat.

I think this is COVID related. This way, they can tell how many tickets are sold for that train.

How does social distancing work on trains? Do they only have one person sit for each pair of seats? That’s how I’d do it; have each coach at half-capacity.

What I’ve seen is that they say they assign each passenger a window seat only. But they say if you’re in a group (like a family), you can sit together if you like.

IMHO, Amtrak might be mighty happy if they had enough ticketed passengers to fill half of the coach seats.
