Night owls (or additional early risers) will now pay less to ride Amtrak.
The business on Thursday revealed a slate of $5 to $20 train fares for paths running in between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. on choose Northeast lines.
The less expensive paths will serve stations in its Northeast Corridor like New York, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and more. A late-night train from New York to Newark, New Jersey, for instance, will cost just $5.
The discount rates are targeted at “travelers returning from concerts, plays, sporting events or those who prefer later or earlier departures,” the business composed in a Thursday statement.
