About Amtrak Silver Service

The Silver Service is an Amtrak train line that runs from New York City to Miami, connecting the largest cities in the Mid-Atlantic region with key destinations in the South and various places across the Sunshine State.

Two trains, the Silver Meteor and Silver Star, collectively comprise the Silver Service. Both trains run the length of the coast from New York to Miami and vice versa. On average, the Silver Service carries more than 700,000 passengers per year, making it one of the most popular long-distance train routes in the U.S.

Spanning over 1,300 miles, it will take up to 28 hours to ride the entire train route from end to end. That’s why, trains on the Silver Service line come equipped with a variety of sleeper cars that travelers taking an overnight train can choose from.

Silver Meteor and Silver Star train tickets are available from as little as €6.43 for shorter trips and cost as much as €370.93 for longer trips and last-minute bookings. Amtrak has been an official Wanderu partner since 2015, which means you can safely book your Silver Service train trip in advance on Wanderu and rest easy knowing you scored cheap train tickets with ease.

Tampa to Orlando

Pros: Great staff! Organized departure. Quick, comfy trip to Orlando. Cons: Train arriving into Tampa was delayed. It would be great to be allowed to park in the enclosed parking lot as a 1 way ticket passenger. Having specific parking options written out online about parking at Tampa Union Station would be really helpful. I called ahead of my trip to find out about parking and was told I'd be able to park in the lot, but when I arrived at the station on the day of my trip was told I couldn't park my car there bc I had a one way ticket. Had I known the secured parking lot was only available to return ticket holders, I would've made other arrangements and not left my car in the unsecured parking area near the station. My car was fine when I got back, but I was worried about it during my trip. Tips: If you plan on taking your car to the station, be sure to speak to an agent before your trip date and let them know what kind of ticket you have in order to confirm allowance into secured parking lot at Tampa Union Station.
