AMTRAK offering extra discount for members of military


Amtrak is honoring the dedication of the nation’s military by offering active-duty U.S. personnel, their spouses and dependents an extra 10 percent discount on travel on most Amtrak trains. Three days advance purchase is required.

This special offer is in addition to the everyday 10 percent military discount, and is valid now to June 30 for travel from June 13 to July 16. The extra discount is available on coach seats on all routes except the Acela Express and Thruway Bus connections.

With this extra discount up to two children ages 2 to 12 travel at half price when accompanied by an adult, making Amtrak a great way for families to travel.

A current active duty U.S. armed forces identification card is required to receive the discount.

Amtrak travels to more than 500 stations in 46 states, and America’s Railroad® offers service to a number of cities that are home to military bases including Albuquerque, N.M.; El Paso, Texas; Fayetteville, N.C.; Tampa, Fla.; and Oklahoma City, San Diego, and Washington, D.C.

To take advantage of discount, use promo code V638. Fares are subject to availability. Others restrictions may apply. To book travel, visit or call 800-USA-RAIL.
