Amtrak is a great way to get scenic views while skipping the traffic. Choose from over 500 destinations across the United States and Canada.

The whole family can enjoy discounted fares, making it an affordable option for multigenerational travel.

Children 2 through 12 years old ride half-price every day. Infants under 2 ride free. Kids and infants must be accompanied by at least one adult (18+) in the same reservation.

Senior citizens, veterans, members of the military, passengers with disabilities, and college students are all eligible for 10% fare discounts.

Other top savings offers:

Through Labor Day, September 2, enjoy a BOGO offer for weekend travel on the Capital Corridor (Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays). The 168-mile passenger train route in Northern California operates between San Jose, in the Bay Area, and Auburn, in the Sacramento Valley. The route is named after the two points most trains operate between — San Jose and Sacramento. Use discount code V405.

Saving up to 60% gives you more to spend on an exciting adventure with your favorite peeps by your side. Amtrak Share Fares offers this major discount when you bring the gang. The more that ride with you, the greater the savings.

Here’s how the discount works:

  • Passenger 1 – full price (or lowest available fare)
  • Groups of 2 – full price (or lowest available fare)
  • Groups of 3 – 17% off all tickets
  • Groups of 4 – 30% off all tickets
  • Groups of 5 – 39% off all tickets

Amtrak has bundled a bucket list trip — the 6-day Grand Canyon Getaway — a round-trip from Chicago. You’ll visit Williams, Arizona an iconic town along historic Route 66 then board the Grand Canyon Railway for a scenic ride into the Grand Canyon.
