It’s time to spend less and see more of what New York has to offer. In celebration of the 45th anniversary of the Adirondack train, New York residents and visitors can receive 45 percent off a companion ticket when they purchase a full-priced adult ticket on the Adirondack. Additionally, customers who show their Amtrak ticket to or from Ticonderoga, NY (station code FTC) at Fort Ticonderoga’s ticket office throughout July and August will receive free access to the numerous attractions and experiences on land and water at the iconic fort and historic site that dates back to the 18th century.
The Adirondack, with daily service between New York City, through the lush wine country of the Hudson Valley to Montreal, has frequently been referred to as one of Amtrak’s most scenic routes. With these special savings, Amtrak is encouraging travelers to enjoy a must-see New York attraction with a comfortable, safe and affordable journey. No special purchase or ticket is required, but the Amtrak ticket is required to be within 10 days of the travel period.
