Amtrak Introduces Lowest Fares of 2020

Amtrak passengers can now receive extra savings when traveling throughout the Northeast with the lowest fares of the year, which combine 30 percent savings with the ongoing Saver Fares already offered on Acela and Northeast Regional (NER) trains, by booking before July 31 for travel through September 12, 2020. These fares are available with no blackout dates and exchanges and refunds processed upon customer request through August 31, 2020. Amtrak’s new, enhanced safety initiatives will continue to be in effect for customers and employees on our trains and at our stations, including its measures to deliver a New Standard of Travel.

Prices for the following trips, which require 14 days advanced purchase, are as low as:

  • New York City – Philadelphia NER – $29, Acela – $49
  • Philadelphia – Washington, D.C. NER – $29, Acela – $49
  • Boston – Philadelphia NER – $29, Acela – $69
  • Boston – Washington, D.C. NER – $49, Acela – $69
  • New York – Providence NER – $29, Acela – $49
  • New York – Baltimore NER – $29, Acela – $69
  • New York – Boston NER – $29, Acela – $59
  • New York – Washington, D.C. NER – $29, Acela – $69

Advanced purchase is required at least three to fourteen days prior to travel. Fares are one way (adult) and no additional discounts apply. Valid for Acela Business class seats and Northeast Regional Coach class only. Seating is limited; seats may not be available on all days. Once purchased, all sales are final with no exchange or refund value. Once travel has begun, no changes to the itinerary are permitted. Other restrictions may apply.

Tickets are currently for sale and can be found, along with current schedules.

In addition to aggressive steps to disinfect stations and trains, additional Amtrak measures deliver a New Standard of Travel by including the following:

  • Face coverings: Amtrak requires all customers and employees wear face masks or an alternative face covering while in stations and on-board trains.
  • Limiting bookings: We are limiting bookings on most trains to allow for more physical distancing in seating areas. Individuals traveling alone may use the seat next to them for personal belongings, while friends and family members will easily find seats together.
  • Air Quality: All of our trains are equipped with onboard filtration systems with a fresh air exchange rate every 4-5 minutes.
  • Physical distancing: Signage has been displayed at our busiest stations to indicate safe distances in high traffic areas. In addition, protective plastic barriers have been installed at customer counters at our busiest stations.

All aboard The Vietage, which departed for its inaugural journey on Wednesday 1st July 2020 and now brings luxury railway journeys through the Vietnamese countryside connecting Da Nang and Quy Nhon cities.
