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 PLN 12.82 for shorter trips and cost as much as PLN 1,293.18 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 score cheap train tickets without any additional booking fees.

With the onboard power outlets, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a USB power adapter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.

Since Amtrak Silver Service 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.
