The "Reward Travel Sale" is not available on all departures and all dates and blackout dates apply. Seating is limited and seats may not be available on all trains or all times. Routes and schedules are subject to change without notice. Once travel has begun, no changes to the itinerary are permitted; other restrictions may apply.

Note: Amtrak's new, enhanced safety initiatives will continue to be in effect for customers and employees on its trains and stations, including its measures to deliver a "new standard of travel." Protocols include:

  • Face coverings: Amtrak requires all customers and employees wear face masks or an alternative face covering while in stations and on board. 
  • Limiting bookings: Amtrak is limiting bookings on most trains to allow for more physical distancing in seating areas
  • Air Quality: All trains are equipped with onboard filtration systems with a fresh air exchange rate every four to five minutes
  • Physical distancing: Signage has been displayed at Amtrak's busiest stations to indicate safe distances in high traffic areas; in addition, protective plastic barriers have been installed at customer counters 

Tickets are currently for sale and can be found, along with current schedules, on and through the Amtrak app; all prices will be automatically discounted from the standard fare price.
