Grand Central

Seating Options

We really shouldn’t call Standard Class on the Grand Central standard at all. After all, is a friendly, highly trained, customer focused staff standard on most economy class services? No. Are seats that remind you of comfortable living room armchairs standard on a tight budget? No. Are seat numbers that are randomly arranged because they were moved during renovations, and then kept that way because they were deemed more fun, standard? Are 25% fewer seats to give you more legroom than the same class on equivalent trains, standard? Are Monopoly, Cluedo and Chess boards available on every table, standard? No. No. And no. What about being able to buy affordable play pieces at the buffet or bringing your own to save even more money? Is that standard? No. Yet it’s all standard on the Grand Central routes. And best of all, you don’t even have to be Mr. Moneybags to afford it.

Meals & Concessions

It seems appropriate that the food on the Grand Central train might offer choices as varied as its American namesake. And it does, with a bar-buffet car to satisfy any taste or craving located near the center of the train. There you’ll find a large selection of hot and cold drinks including a wide range of alcoholic beverages, fresh sandwiches, chips, snacks, chocolate and cakes available for purchase. All so you can fully enjoy the ride (get it—fully!).

With all this good food and spirit to pamper your taste buds, you’ll feel like you’re at the center of the universe. Hey, that’s just like Grand Central, too! .

On Board Services

Onboard services in Standard Class are made to delight. Like having Monopoly, Cluedo and Chess boards on every table. So bring your play pieces from home, or find ones readily available for purchase in the Bar Buffet car. Prefer a little solo time? Free WiFi is on all Grand Central services. Want your whatchamacallit or thingamabob? With luggage racks in your car, they’re never far away either.

Services at the station

What could be better than waiting in line at the train station? Well, Well, we could think of a few things. That’s why we suggest e-tickets. They let you print your ticket at the station. You go right to the ticketing kiosk, print, and then you’re ready to board your train. Unless, of course, you’d prefer to stop in at a fabulous store or restaurant with the time you just saved.
