Amtrak to offer reduced fares on several Northeast routes


Amtrak is trying to entice summer travelers with lower ticket prices on some of its Northeast Corridor trains.

The national intercity passenger railroad will introduce reduced fares, including 25 percent off the lowest published coach fare, on the Northeast Regional service between Washington, D.C., New York City and Boston. Amtrak also will cut fares on service south of Washington, D.C., to Newport News, Va.; the Vermonter service between Springfield, Mass., and Washington, D.C.; and on the Keystone service between Philadelphia and New York City.

In addition, Amtrak has extended lower fares introduced in February for the Acela Express, with ticket prices as low as $99 between D.C. and New York City, and $79 between New York City and Boston.
