Amtrak routes with sleeper cars

Amtrak Viewliner Bedroom

An Amtrak sleeper car is a train car that contains restrooms, shower rooms and sleeping accommodations (not coach seats). Only the overnight and long-distance trains have sleeper cars, which contain roomettes and bedrooms. Meals are also included when you purchase one of these overnight sleeping options (except on the Silver Star route).

See the list below to view the Amtrak routes with sleeper cars and the type of sleeping accommodations you can book to learn more. Note that there are two types of sleeper cars: superliner (two-level train car) and viewliner (one-level train car), with the main difference being that the viewliner roomettes and bedrooms have toilets, sinks and higher celings.
