Why I Dig this Deal:

For $40, this pass offers the best in-budget travel across America!
Clara Bosonetto | September 3, 2022

Amtrak lets your group save up to 60% on Coach seat travel on most routes, including popular routes like the Northeast Regional, Empire Builder, Auto Train, Downeaster, Palmetto, and the famous California Zephyr. The Share Fares savings are also available in Acela Business Class. So, get the whole group together to share the ride and the savings. The more that travel together, the better the savings.

Here’s how it works:

Groups will receive the following cumulative discount off of the adult rail fare:

  • 1st and 2nd Passengers pay full price (or lowest available fare)
  • Groups of 3 people receive a 17% discount off all tickets
  • Groups of 4 – 30% off all tickets
  • Groups of 5 – 39% off all tickets
  • Groups of 6 – 47% off all tickets
  • Groups of 7 – 54% off all tickets
  • Groups of 8 – 60% off all tickets

There’s another category for extra savings. That’s when eight (8) people travel together on the same itinerary.

Passengers will receive the following discounts off the adult rail fare:

  • 1st and 2nd Passengers pay full price (or lowest available fare)
  • Passenger 3 will receive a 50% discount
  • Passenger 4 will receive a 70% discount
  • Passenger 5 will receive a 75% discount
  • Passenger 6 will receive an 85% discount
  • Passenger 7 will receive a 100% discount
  • Passenger 8 will receive a 100% discount

Here’s an example of who pays what on the Seattle to Portland route:

  • 1st and 2nd Passengers pay $28 each
  • 3rd pays $14
  • 4th in the group of 8 pays $8.40
  • 5th pays $7
  • 6th in the group pays $4.20
  • Tickets 7 and 8th pay $0 – zero

This offer is not valid on the Amtrak Hiawatha, Capitol Corridor, Keystone Service, Canadian section of the Maple Leaf, the Canadian section of the Adirondack, Canadian section of Cascades, Pacific Surfliner, and Pennsylvanian.
