Has anyone taken the Amtrak/Acela in the NE recently? NY to Bos? Are there any social distancing protocols in place onboard or packing like sardines for $$$?

did NY -> DC last week on a Fri afternoon. not sure if protocol or just happened to be the volume of tickets sold, but no one sitting next to one another

50% capacity on all Amtrak currently so the seat next to you should be empty, but capacity was also much lower than that a couple of weekends ago

You mean they’re gradually increasing?

No the cars are still fairly empty. I have been traveling r/t NY-> BAL for a few weeks now. Prices really came down, even booking last minute. Train stations are ghost towns. Eery.
