Amtrak Downeaster Rolls Out State Employee Discount

In response to Governor Mills Executive Order for State Agencies to lead by example in reducing carbon emissions, the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority (NNEPRA) announced a 15% discount on a for all Maine State Employees who use the Amtrak Downeaster for travel within or outside the State of Maine.  

Passenger rail is more fuel-efficient than traveling by car on a per passenger mile basis and reduces the vehicle miles traveled on our roads. “We hope this discount will encourage State employees to choose a cleaner method of travel for both work-related and personal travel,” said Natalie Bogart, Marketing Director at NNEPRA. “It also makes travel time more productive and less stressful than driving.”

The Amtrak Downeaster makes five round-trips daily between Brunswick, ME and Boston, MA and this discount is available on all Downeaster trains. To receive the 15% discount, State employees must purchase tickets three days in advance of travel and reference promotion code v503. A State I.D. is required for travel.
