Since 1971, Amtrak has been moving people across the country. To celebrate its 50 year anniversary, Amtrak offers a special one-way 50% off sale with a maximum $50 per segment fare on Coach and Acela Business class on select routes.
How would you like to go from Texarkana to Chicago for $50? Or how about from Shreveport to Ft. Worth for $13. That’s cheaper than a tank of gas! You can even see a huge part of the country from Chicago to Los Angeles or from New York City to Miami for $50 (One way). A quick search for airfare from New York to Miami roundtrip was $144.30 so by taking the train will save you $40. It may take longer on Amtrak but the seeing the scenery of this great country is an adventure in itself. (Route prices checked on April 28 for travel between June 17-June 21, 2021)
These are one-way adult rail fares for Coach and Acela Business class. The Acela operates mostly in the northeast US. The roomettes (sleeper car) are not included as part of the deal. Some trains are exempt like the Pacific Surfliner and between Philadelphia and Pittsburg. The Amtrak 50 year anniversary sale ends on May 5, 2021 and the travel is valid for June 2-November 13, 2021.
