Rail Passengers Association Membership Discount

Rail Passengers Association Members Save 10%

Rail Passengers Association (RPA) members are eligible to receive a 10% discount on the lowest available rail fare on most Amtrak trains. Visit the Rail Passengers Association web site for information about becoming a member.

Three-Day Advance Purchase

To use the Rail Passengers Association discount, you must book your tickets (including tickets for travel on unreserved trains) at least three days in advance of travel.

If you make any change to your itinerary, you must re-qualify for any membership discount used. This means that, to be eligible to receive an applicable membership discount, any change to your itinerary must be made at least three days in advance of travel.

Membership Card Required

You must present your current, valid Rail Passengers Association membership card at the time your tickets are issued. Conductors may ask to see your membership card during your trip. Please carry your card with you onboard. Members with “Family” membership cards must each carry their own card with them.
