On most trains and on most days, up to two children may travel at the half-price fare with each passenger paying the full adult fare. If a third child will be traveling in the party, reservations must be made for that child as an "Adult" and the full adult fare will be charged. For larger parties, make sure that one passenger paying the full adult fare is included for each set of two children you would like to receive the discounted fare.
*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.
You can make reservations for up to eight passengers in each online transaction. To make reservations for more than eight passengers, you may complete an additional online transaction, or you may call 1-800-USA-RAIL (1-800-872-7245) for assistance.
