With the relaunch of its USA Rail Pass, Amtrak is introducing a new and affordable way to take a multi-segment train journey across America. This new offering allows passengers to take up to ten rides to see the country and explore sights at many of Amtrak’s 500 destinations. Now through June 22, the USA Rail Pass is available for $299, a savings of $200 off the regular $499 price. Customers taking advantage of this special introductory offer will pay less than $30 per ride for ten travel segments over 30 days.
To make the experience as seamless and touch-free as possible, passengers can purchase the USA Rail Pass on Amtrak.com and start building their itinerary on the website or on the Amtrak app. By leveraging the app, passengers can also access their ticket, check train status and get boarding information prior to departure.
USA Rail Pass allows up to 10 segments in a 30-day period beginning with the passenger’s first trip and is valid for use within 120 days of pass purchase. After purchasing the pass, passengers can book and modify their trip itinerary and will receive an electronic ticket for each segment to present to the conductor when boarding.
USA Rail Pass is available for travel in Coach class—featuring wide, reclining seats with a big picture window, ample legroom, and no middle seat. A travel segment occurs when a passenger boards and disembarks one of Amtrak’s scheduled services. If the trip involves making a connection, passengers will use two segments of the USA Rail Pass. Upgrades to Business Class and private room accommodations are not available at this time. Amtrak Guest Rewards members will earn two points per dollar spent on each USA Rail Pass following travel on the first segment. Additional restrictions, terms and conditions apply.
