Multi-Ride Tickets, which allow you to take multiple trips using one ticket within a set amount of time, are available on many of our short-distance routes.
The monthly ticket is valid for unlimited travel between the origin and destination stations you select, and all stations in between, for an entire calendar month.
The six-ride Downeaster College Pass (for students only with college/university ID) is valid for a 365-day period on Downeaster trains between Boston - North Station, MA and Brunswick, ME.
The ten-ride ticket is valid for ten rides within a 45-day, 60-day or 180-day period depending on your origin and destination stations.
Multi-Ride tickets are delivered as eTickets for all routes except the Amtrak Cascades (coming soon). You can print your eTicket before you travel and go directly to the boarding location at the station with your eTicket in hand. Once onboard, the conductor will check your eTicket.
With Multi-Ride eTickets purchased while logged in on Amtrak.com, you can view your trip details and keep track of the number of rides remaining for ten- and six-ride tickets. Once you retrieve your reservation you'll see the 'Usage History' section displaying a summary of number of rides you have left. Click the 'View details' link for expanded information, including the date, time and service used for each trip.
You can also review the number of rides remaining on your ten- and six-ride tickets by scanning your eTicket at any Quik-Trak kiosk.
Multi-Ride Tickets are available for travel on many routes, but restrictions vary by route, destination and time of day. Multi-Ride Tickets may not be used on long-distance trains, certain segments of short-distance trains or Acela Express trains. View Multi-Ride Restricted Trains
