Amtrak Military Discount

Amtrak Military Discount
It's the middle of summer and we have the travel bug! Sure, jumping on a plane may be more convenient but how cool would it be to travel across the country by train? To see the wonderful country you serve and not pay for gas or worry about traffic? Sounds pretty good to us. Add a military discount and we are sold!

Amtrak has been the company of choice for train travel since 1971 when the company began operating as a result of the Rail Passenger Service Act of 1970. Today, Amtrak boasts 21,000 route miles in 46 states plus Washington, D.C. and three Canadian provinces. The company operates over 300 trains per day at speeds up to 150 mph, much faster than your car and has over 500 destinations.

Active duty military personnel and their dependents are now eligible to receive 10% off on the lowest available rail fare on most trains. In addition to the discount, uniformed military personnel are allowed to proceed to the head of the ticket line. There are some limitations on the discount which include not being applicable to business class or first class and the discount is not valid on the weekday Acela Express trains.
