Website Promotes Amtrak Travel in Pennsylvania

A new website has been created by Amtrak and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to promote intercity rail travel in the state.

The site is http://www.patripsbytrain.com/ and is designed to provide  discounts on travel, excursion packages to popular events and destinations in Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, New York City and other destinations.

“The Keystone and Pennsylvanian services offer family friendly, convenient transportation options to our residents,” PennDOT Secretary Leslie Richards said. “These excursions are a great way to experience the culture and events our state has to offer while trying a different way to get there.”

Pennsylvania helps make up the operating losses of the Pittsburgh-New York Pennsylvanian and the New York-Philadelphia-Harrisburg Keystone Service.
