Dunkin’ Donuts and Amtrak are expanding their partnership to include all Northeast Regional trains.
That means that the almost 12 million customers who ride the Northeast Regional and Acela Express services will be able to purchase Dunkin’ Donuts’ original blend and decaf hot coffee aboard their trains.
The hot coffee was formerly only available on the Acela Express services. Now it will be served throughout the Northeast Regional line, one of the nation’s busiest rail corridors, with hourly service to New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Richmond and Lynchburg.
