Trains have evolved over time, from the trailblazing gateway to the west, to industrial powerhouse, to the romantic era of high class personal escape. Today the modern train has settled on a new identity: ideal mode for family travel.
Travelling by train is a comfortable and enjoyable way to take yourself and your kids to destinations both near and far. There is no worrying about rest stops and long, tiring drives. At the same time, you can avoid the stress of having to arrive early for security checks and the hassle of paying for checked luggage. Trains allow you and the family to sit back and relax on your way to the destination, while children enjoy watching the country fly by their window, the wealth of things there are to see and potentially a little extra room to spread out.
- Kids aged 2-12 ride for 50% of what an adult ticket costs (at the lowest possible rate), with each fare-paying adult (up to 2). Additional children must be booked at an adult rate.
- Kids under age 2 ride FREE with a fare-paying adult, up to one infant per person. Additional children under 2 get the 50% off rate. Infants are not guaranteed a seat.
