Children's Policy

Children Ages 2-12 Save 50%

Up to two children ages 2-12 are eligible to receive a 50% discount on the lowest available adult rail fare on most Amtrak trains with each fare-paying adult (age 18+). If any additional child per adult will be traveling, reservations must be made for that child as an "Adult" and the full adult fare will be charged.

Infants (under Age 2) Ride Free

One child (classified as an "infant") under the age of two may ride free with each fare-paying adult (age 18+). Additional children under age two are permitted with each adult traveler under the 50% discount policy.

An infant traveling free may occupy a vacant seat only if the seat is not needed for a paying passenger. Conductors may require that infants occupying a seat without paying a fare be removed to provide seating to a fare-paying passenger.

Discount Limitations
  • Passengers 12 years of age and younger must travel with an adult passenger who is at least 18 years old.
  • Children traveling alone are not entitled to a children's discount.
  • The children's discount is not valid on weekday Acela Express trains.
  • The children's discount does not apply to Business Class, First Class or sleeping accommodation charges. These upgrades are permitted upon payment of the full accommodation charges.
  • The children's discount is not valid for travel on certain Amtrak Thruway connecting services.
  • Additional restrictions may apply.
Unaccompanied Minors
  • Children age 12 and under may not travel unaccompanied. They must travel with another person who is at least 18 years old.*
  • Children 13, 14 and 15 years old may travel as unaccompanied minors only under certain conditions.
  • Reservations for unaccompanied minors cannot be made on Amtrak.com.

*Exception: A minor who is 16 or 17, who is a parent to children of any age, may bring those children without restriction. The 16- or 17-year-old must bring proof that he or she is the parent of the children.
