Save with the Virginia Student Fare

Why do students take the train? Because a relaxing ride with great views means you can take a much needed break. While the free WiFi (with no airplane mode) means your devices can stay hard at work. Because you can snack in the Café Car on the way to Grandma’s home-cooked dinner, leaving that semester’s worth of ramen back at school. Because you can haul your laundry (and the shirts you borrowed from your roommate) back to Mom and Dad’s washer at no extra charge. And now, students are taking the train because tickets are 25% off with Promo Code V449.

So if you’re between 13 and 25 and you have a valid student ID, you get 25% off any travel in Virginia and DC. The train is easy to book, easy to board, and makes it easy to take whatever trip you’ve been daydreaming while trying to stay awake during Statistics. So, brush up on your Virginia geography, and discover the best kept secret in student savings.
