The discounts are valid for Acela business class seats and Northeast Regional Coach class only. Seating is limited and seats may not be available on all days.

Once purchased, tickets are non-refundable. Exchanges are permitted within the ticket validity period with a 25 percent cancellation fee charges.

Once travel has begun, no changes to the itinerary are permitted. Other restrictions may apply.
