BOGO tickets for midweek winter travel in New York


BOGO tickets are valid for travel Tuesday-Thursday on five trains servicing the Northeast Corridor within New York — specifically Adirondack, Empire Service, Ethan Allen, Maple Leaf and Associated Thruways, minus 7000-8999 Thruway service.

Though this sale is primarily for travel within the Empire State, it also includes travel between New York City and Montreal and Burlington, Vermont. Additional terms and conditions of this sale include an advance purchase at least one day before departure for coach travel. Discounted tickets are limited and may not be available for purchase on all trains or dates.

To book this deal, search your desired dates and route within New York from the sale’s landing page. The discount will automatically apply to your search, so there’s no need to add a promo code.

When booking, you’ll note the cheapest fares available will be Value fares, which incur a 25% cancellation fee if canceled before departure and cannot be modified. The slightly more expensive Flex fares are fully refundable and changeable for free if canceled before departure.


Take 3 round trips in January or February and get 1 free round trip this summer


Those who take three round trips between now and Feb. 29 can register to earn a free round trip on their original train type, either Acela or Northeast Regional. Travelers will receive two free coach one-way trip coupons for travel starting at 12 a.m. PDT on July 1 through 11:59 PDT on Aug. 31.

A minimum of $25 spent one-way is required to qualify for Northeast Regional trains, while customers must spend $40 one-way for Acela trains.
