To celebrate the dedication of military personnel in the United States, Amtrak is now offering active-duty members of the armed services, their spouses and dependents an additional 10 percent discount on most trips.

According to Amtrak’s official website, the new discount for military personnel is in addition to the everyday 10 percent discount active-duty members already receive, and the deal is valid through June 30 for travel from June 13 to July 16. Three days' advance purchase is required to include the additional 10 percent discount.

The sale is applicable for coach seats on all routes except the Acela Express and Thruway Bus connections. For children between ages two to 12, they will be able to travel at half price when accompanied by an adult.

For military personnel to be eligible, they must show their armed forces identification card.

Active-duty members of the armed services should use the promo code V638 when purchasing tickets via or by calling 800-USA-RAIL. In addition, Amtrak serves a number of cities that are home to military bases.
