In celebration of its new state-supported service train, Amtrak is offering customers 25 percent off full fares on Valley Flyer.

The discount is valid for sale and travel through Thursday, Oct. 31, according to an Amtrak press release. 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.

Tickets can be purchased online at Amtrak.com, using the Amtrak app, in-person at Amtrak ticket desks and kiosks, and by phone at 1-800-USA-RAIL. The 25 percent 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 percent off their full fare for one child ticket (ages 2 to 12).

According to the release, 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, the ability to travel with small pets on many trains and spacious seats with ample leg room. Travelers are permitted to bring two personal items and two carry-on bags.

The offer is valid for adult, coach seats only; no upgrades are permitted. Fares are subject to availability and seating is limited. Once purchased, tickets are non-refundable.

Amtrak also runs service along this rail corridor with its Vermonter train, which connects St. Albans, Vt. to Washington, D.C., the release states. The trains will connect with Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor in New Haven, Conn., and serve stations between New Haven and Springfield.
