California Everyday Discount for Senior Passengers

Travelers ages 62 and older can enjoy a 15% savings on select routes in California, including the Pacific Surfliner, Capitol Corridor and San Joaquins. Sink into your seat and enjoy the diverse scenery of the Golden State while traveling to top destinations, including San Diego, Los Angeles, and Santa Barbara; Bakersfield, Fresno and Stockton; as well as the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley, and Sacramento. Onboard amenities such as a Café Car, WiFi, power outlets and spacious seating offer a comfortable ride that will have you arriving refreshed.

This offer is different from the national Amtrak discount for seniors 62 and older, which offers a 10% savings for passengers ages 65 and older. To take advantage of the California Everyday Discount for seniors, select “Adult” as your passenger type on the booking widget below and enter the promotion code "V282". Do not select "Senior" as your passenger type, as that will provide you with the national 10% discount instead. You can also use the promotion code elsewhere on the website, 800-USA-RAIL, or at staffed stations.
