Passenger Discount for Military Personnel

Military Personnel Save 10% and Get Ahead of the Ticket Line

With valid active-duty United States Armed Forces identification cards, active-duty US military personnel, their spouses and their dependents are eligible to receive a 10% discount on the lowest available rail fare on most Amtrak trains, including for travel on the Auto Train. Just use the Fare Finder at the beginning of your search and select 'Military' for each passenger as appropriate to receive the discount.

Additionally, Amtrak supports and thanks our troops by welcoming the uniformed military personnel to the head of the ticket line.
