Amtrak Offers New Low Fares on Acela Express


Up to 25% Off Previous Lowest Fares with Advance Purchase

WASHINGTON - Beginning March 3, Amtrak will offer a new low fare on its premier Acela Express trains, saving passengers up to 25 percent on previous lowest fares. Now available for purchase, Acela Business class tickets will be priced as low as $99 between Washington, DC (WAS) and New York (NYP), and $79 between New York and Boston (BOS).

The new low fares are available for purchase now for travel between March 3 and June 26. A 14-day advance purchase policy applies, and availability is limited. The tickets are one-way and nonrefundable, but can be exchanged. Tickets purchased at the low fare are not eligible for an upgrade to First class accommodations. Until now, the lowest fare available on Acela between WAS and NYP was $133, and $93 between BOS and NYP.

“As Amtrak becomes an increasingly popular way to travel, these new low fares on Acela will make our flagship service more affordable for business and leisure travelers,” said Emmett Fremaux, vice president of marketing and product management.
