Amtrak offers government employees discounted fares on rail travel within the Northeast Corridor. For the first time, you can travel between 70+ stations using the Northeast Regional and Keystone Service. Amtrak will continue to offer discounted government fares on Acela Express trains in the Northeast Corridor.
We've removed the refund rules from our government fares, so your reservation (when booked through approved channels) is now fully refundable if cancelled prior to departure.
For more information please contact: AmtrakGovernmentTravel@Amtrak.com. Government discount may not be booked on Amtrak.com.
Amtrak is providing a discount to government business travelers for the Northeast Corridor Regional train service. Amtrak will offer this while continuing to provide government fares on select Acela routes in the Northeast Corridor. This expansion now includes more than 70 stations on Acela, Northeast Regional and Amtrak Keystone services.
Your agency's authorized Travel Management Company (TMC) are provided a corporate account number that is used to activate the discounted government travel fare. The corporate account number can only be applied by TMCs, or via your agencies booking tool provided through CWTSato or Concur. Contact your travel office for details. Discounted fares are not available through the Amtrak Contact Center, Amtrak.com, Amtrak Mobile, Quik-Trak or Amtrak Ticket Offices.
GSA does not set Amtrak fares. Using the approved government booking channels (CWTSato, Concur, or your TMC) the corporate ID number will be applied to your reservation inquiry. This guarantees that the government rate or better will be returned to you. Amtrak may offer special fares from time to time that are lower than government fare plans. If that is the case our system will always return to you the lowest available fare based on the rules your agency has set for refunds and other conditions.
Changes to travel within an existing reservation created via an approved channel are available via Amtrak Contact Center 1-800-USA-RAIL and Amtrak Ticket Offices. New reservations must be made via the approved booking channels. Changes that result in additional charges must be approved per your agency policy.
Tickets sold as a government travel fare are fully refundable. If ticket is not cancelled before the scheduled departure resulting in a "no show," the entire amount is forfeited and cannot be applied toward future travel.
