Pros: Comfy, convenient, good price. Cons: Faster WiFi. Could not use it for my work at all. The train was also very late and not much communication about the delay so it was difficult to coordinate with my ride in Cary.

Amtrak Piedmont Train Guide & FAQs

Do Amtrak Piedmont trains have WiFi?

Yes, Amtrak Piedmont offers WiFi on their trains. Although most trips with Amtrak Piedmont will have WiFi as advertised, some trains might not come equipped with WiFi and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. Amtrak Piedmont WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends; you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.

Are there power points or USB points on the train?

You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbour might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power points, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a power point USB converter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.

Since Amtrak Piedmont might sometimes use replacement train vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.
