On Board Experience

The Heartland Flyer is normally made up of two refurbished Superliner Coaches and a Superliner II Coach/Cafe Car. All of the Heartland Flyer’s coaches feature an upper level coach section with spacious reclining seats, complete with individual reading lights and large windows. The lower level of the two Superliner Coaches features 12 wheel-chair accessible seats on one end and restrooms on the other end. On the lower level of the Superliner II Coach is a full-service cafe car with an attendant and features snacks, sandwiches, soft drinks, cocktails, souvenirs, and sofa style seating where guests can visit and watch the scenery glide by.

Limited bicycle racks are available. Please call ahead to reserve.

There are usually four individuals who work on the Heartland Flyer: Two conductors, who collect and sell all tickets, ensure that passengers board and detrain safely, and are responsible for the safe operation of the train; a Lead Service Attendant (LSA) who manages the snack bar, and ensures the passengers’ safety; and an Engineer, who is responsible for the operation of the train itself. Tickets purchased on-board are cash only and generally are higher in price than those pre-purchased online.

For the safety and comfort of all the passengers, we ask that you arrive at the station in plenty of time so that you don’t have to run. The platform and steps can be damp or slick. Please stay behind the safety line with your belongings until instructed to board.
