Rail Sale from Amtrak

When I can, I take the train. Its the greenest method of travel and usually the most efficient as trains arrive in the center of cities, rather than out in the boonies at an airport hub.

Alas, train travel in the US is not always the most cost effective method of transportation. But it may be this spring, thanks to a sale Amtrak is running. Book before January 23, and the rail line will shave 20% off the usual cost of tickets. The sale is good for travel to and from Chicago, New York, Orlando, Los Angeles, Portland and Washington, DC. (For a complete list of discounted routes, click here). The auto train is also included in the sale. Travel window for this discount is Jan 17 through Mar 29, though tickets must be purchased at least three days ahead. And up to two kids can travel with one adult for half off the regular, not the sale, fare.
