Amtrak and the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) are promoting travel to and from the state capital in Jefferson City with a “BOGO” sale offering free companion travel through next month.
For each adult coach ticket bought for travel through February 29, 2020, with Jefferson City origins or destinations using discount code V716, a second adult on the same itinerary will be ticketed to travel coach free of charge on the Amtrak Missouri River Runner trains. Prices are as low as these fares for two adults between these Missouri cities such as St. Louis to Jefferson City for $25.00, and Kansas City to Jefferson City for $29.00.
These fares thank the community for its patience while local, state and Amtrak officials worked to provide a modular building to serve as a temporary station. It is located along the boarding platform a half-block west of the regular Amtrak station, which closed for repairs in October at the direction of the building’s owner, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
Jefferson City’s beauty shines not only through its natural landscape but also through the many historic buildings and special landmarks. The Missouri State Capitol, Supreme Court Building, Governor’s Mansion and charming Downtown are just a few of the architectural treasures that anchor this unique community, a real gem tucked away in the heart of the nation. Come see why Jefferson City was chosen as “America’s Most Beautiful Small Town!” Visit Jefferson City is a great place to start your adventure.
“Jefferson City leaders have been strong advocates for their community who worked to create a safe, secure and accessible facility,” said Bryan Ross, MoDOT Rail Operations Manager.
“Both Amtrak and MoDOT also are grateful for the work of the station hosts, unpaid volunteers who meet every train, every day, to help our customers and endured weeks without adequate shelter or running water,” said Derrick James, Senior Manager, Amtrak Government Affairs. “We’re very glad those days are behind us and we look forward to working with local and state officials on a permanent solution.”
Along with any special, some restrictions may apply including class of service, other discounts, and cancellation policies. For more information, visit Amtrak.com.
