EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE Athletics is proud to announce a new corporate partnership deal with Amtrak.
Amtrak has recently announced a discount program specifically for students. Students ages 17-25 can now enjoy 15 percent off the lowest available Value Fares all year long.
"This is a huge improvement for students: a larger discount than before and without an annual membership," Amtrak spokesperson Marc Magliari said.
Students must book travel three days in advance using Amtrak.com.
"The partnership makes perfect sense for SIUE," said Mason Glick, SIUE Assistant Athletic Director for Sales and Marketing. "So many of our students are already traveling throughout the region and the country. Now they can travel more affordably."
Students can also take advantage of comfortable, spacious seating, outlets at every seat and free AmtrakConnect Wi-Fi on many routes.
