Take the train and save money. Effective immediately, students ages 17-25 get 15 percent off the lowest available value fares all year long with the launch of the Amtrak student discount. The discount is valid for travel to any of more than 500 destinations across Amtrak’s national network.
To take advantage of the discount, students must book travel three days in advance, exclusively on Amtrak.com, and present valid photo identification on board the train.
Take the train to go back and forth to school or visit a college campus, follow a favorite team to the next away game, a weekend getaway, or visit friends and family.
Skip the hassles of the road and enjoy the journey while you get comfortable, spacious seating, outlets at every seat and FREE AmtrakConnect Wi-Fi on many routes to browse, post and stay connected.
Plus, Amtrak’s generous baggage policy allows students to bring two bags and two carry-ons FREE. So, you’re saving an additional $50 or more each way over what airlines charge for two checked bags. Plus, you avoid the hassle of getting to and from an airport since Amtrak stations are in the center of town.
I always take Amtrak between NYC and Philadelphia or Washington, DC.
