Amtrak Launches Discounted Group Fare Plan

Amtrak announced this week that it will offer deep discounts for group travel on many of its trains.

The fares can be used aboard Northeast Regional trains between Washington and Boston, and on most national network trains. They are not valid for travel on Acela Express or the Auto Train.

The Share Fares provide for discounts for up to three passengers when groups of two to four travel together. The group must buy its tickets at least three days in advance of travel.

Under terms of the program, one passenger must pay the full fare for travel. A second passenger received a discount of 15 percent while a third passengers gets a 60 percent discount.

A fourth passenger will receive a 70 percent discount. Fares are one-way for adults and no additional discount can be applied.
