"Whether it's a day trip to the Big Apple or a weekend visit with family, Amtrak's new fare is perfect for the value conscious traveler," said Emmett Fremaux, Amtrak's vice president of marketing and product management.

In addition to travel between Washington, DC and Boston, the 25 percent off discount is also available on service south of Washington, DC to Newport News, on Amtrak's Vermonter service between Springfield, Mass. and Washington, DC, and on the Keystone service between Philadelphia and New York.

The summer discount may be combined with Amtrak's every day Kid's Half Price fare for up to two children ages 2 to 15, when accompanied by an adult. Tickets purchased with the summer discount are non-refundable but exchangeable. These new low fares may not be combined with any discount other than the Kid's Half Price fare.

These lower fares will now be available for travel through September 3, 2009. Reservations are required and must be made 14 days prior to travel. Upgrades to First Class are not available.
