Fare Discount Extended for Virginia Train Service

For our Loudoun County travelers who like to go by rail, here's some good news.

Traveling by train between Virginia and points north is even more affordable this winter as Amtrak has extended its fare promotion on the Northeast Regional service – including the new Lynchburg route to and from the Northeast Corridor – through March 31, 2010.

Passengers who book now through March 17 for travel through March 31, 2010 may take advantage of a fare promotion which offers up to 25 percent off the lowest published coach fare on Northeast Regional service between Lynchburg, Washington, D.C., New York, and Boston.

This discount comes at a time when most people are seeking more cost effective, simpler travel options during the busy holiday travel season, and the new Lynchburg train offers a great opportunity to let someone else do the driving. The average trip from Lynchburg to Washington, DC is faster by train than by car.

Tickets are now available and may be booked at Upgrades to Business Class for Coach tickets purchased at this promotional price are not available. Seats are limited and fares are not available on all trains. The fares are not available for travel on November 24-25, November 28-30, December 17-23, December 26-30, January 3-4, February 12, and February 15. Other restrictions may apply.

Sample one-way fares include $66 between Lynchburg and New York and $71 between Lynchburg and Boston. See for details. Reservations are required for travel and must be made at least 14 days in advance of travel. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL.
