Amtrak Extends Fare Promotion on Northeast Regional Service

WASHINGTON – Amtrak continues to make travel in the Northeast affordable by extending through December 16 its fare promotion which offers up to 25 percent off the lowest published coach fare on Northeast Regional service between Washington, New York and Boston.

Sample one-way fares include $49 between either Washington and New York or New York and Boston.

“Customer response to these new, low fares has been strong,” says Emmett Fremaux, Amtrak’s Vice President of Marketing and Product Management. “Amtrak is pleased to be able to extend this exceptional offer to continue to make travel in the northeast more affordable.”

In addition to travel between Washington and Boston, the 25 percent off fare promotion is also available through December 16 on service south of Washington to Newport News, on Amtrak’s Vermonter service between Springfield, Mass. and Washington and on the Keystone service between Philadelphia and New York.

There are no additional taxes or fees to Amtrak prices.
