Amtrak is turning 50 and is sharing the anniversary love by offering customers 50 percent off train fares to celebrate. With 300 trains a day traveling to more than 500 destinations in 46 states, Washington, DC, and three Canadian provinces, it won’t be difficult to find a route you’ll love.

Amtrak’s sale launched on April 28, 2021, but if you want to take advantage of these low prices, you’d better hurry since the sale ends on May 5, 2021. The discount is only available for travel between June 2 and November 13, 2021. The maximum discount per segment is $50.

The discount is valid on most fares but does exclude the Pennsylvanian and Keystone Service (between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh), Pacific Surfliner, New Haven-Springfield Shuttle, and Thruway connecting services.

Some of the best deals with Amtrak’s anniversary sale include:

  • New York, NY to Miami, FL, for $50
  • Portland, OR to Seattle, WA, for $18
  • New York, NY to Boston, MA, for $49
  • Washington, DC to Chicago, IL, for $50
  • Chicago, IL to Los Angeles, CA, for $50

There’s a 25 percent cancellation fee, but there are no change fees if you need to adjust your trip. Visit Amtrak’s website to learn more about the 50th-anniversary sale, and pick out your route. The discount is automatically applied.
