California Everyday Discount for Senior Passengers


Seniors Save 15%

Travelers ages 62 and older can enjoy a 15% savings on Pacific Surfliner trips year-round. Sink into your seat and enjoy the diverse scenery of Southern California while traveling to top destinations, including San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and more. Onboard amenities such as a Café Car, Wi-Fi, 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, book your trip using the ticketing widget below or visit the Amtrak website. Select “Adult” as your passenger type, then enter V282 into the promotion code field. Do not select "Senior" as your passenger type, as that will provide you with the national 10% discount instead. You can also purchase tickets by calling 800-USA-RAIL or visiting a staffed station and referring to Discount Code V282.
