SPRINGFIELD, MA – In celebration of its new state supported service train in conjunction with MassDOT, Amtrak is offering customers 25% off full fares on the Valley Flyer. Valid for sale and travel between Friday, Aug. 30 through Thursday, Oct. 31, customers can save and experience this new service, which debuts today. Traveling along the Connecticut River, a region referred to as the Knowledge Corridor, the Valley Flyer makes station stops in Springfield, Holyoke, Northampton and Greenfield, Massachusetts.
Tickets are now available and can be found on Amtrak.com, the Amtrak app, Amtrak ticket desks and kiosks, and through 1-800-USA-RAIL. The 25% savings will be applied to the purchase when using discount code V459. In addition, with the purchase of one adult ticket, customers can save 50% off their full fare for one child ticket (ages 2-12).
Valley Flyer customers can expect the same amenities onboard as they do on all other Amtrak trains including, free Wi-Fi, the freedom to use phones and electronic devices at all times (no “airplane mode”), the ability to travel with small pets on many trains, large spacious seats with ample leg room, no middle seat, and one of the most generous baggage policies in the travel industry, applicable for two personal items and two carry-on bags.
This offer is valid for adult, coach seats only; no upgrades are permitted. Fares are subject to availability and seating is limited, seats may not be available on all trains and dates. Once purchased, tickets are non-refundable. This offer is not combinable with any other discount offer. Fares routes and schedules are subject to change without notice. Once travel has begun, no changes to the itinerary are permitted. Cancelation fees may apply. Other restrictions may apply.
The restoration of train service to the Knowledge Corridor is a project of MassDOT. Amtrak also currently runs service along this rail corridor, with its Vermonter train, which connects St. Albans, Vermont to Washington, D.C. The trains will also connect with Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor at New Haven and serve stations between New Haven and Springfield.
