Did you know that Amtrak offers a 15% student discount on travel throughout the midwest?
If your son or daughter hasn’t considered using Amtrak to travel home, here are 7 reasons why they should give Amtrak a try for their transportation needs.
With the Amtrak app, you get simple and intuitive access to all the travel information you need, whenever you need it.
The Amtrak College Student Discount is valid for travel on the following trains: Wolverine, Blue Water, Pere Marquette, Illini, Saluki, Illinois Zephyr, Missouri River Runner, Lincoln Service, Carl Sandburg, Hiawatha, Hoosier State, and associated thruways; except not valid on 7000-8999 thruway series. The discount will be applied automatically when qualifying travel is selected in Fare Finder.
Amtrak’s comfortable, spacious seating, accessible outlets to keep students’ phones and computers charged are exactly what your student needs to unwind. And with free Wi-Fi, students can relax, browse, stay connected and maybe even get some schoolwork done along the way.
Additionally, when students use air travel, the luggage can get extremely pricey. Amtrak, however, lets students bring up to two carry-on bags for free. So, as Amtrak says, “free laundry is just a train ride away.”
Amtrak’s rides are perfect for students who need to get home, but also need some time to unwind. And now, with the student discount, it is an inexpensive, relaxing option! No traffic jams and no parking fees.
