Amtrak 'Multi-Ride' 2014 Costs - Amtrak Commuter Pass / Monthly Pass for the Philly-NYC Commuter.
From the Amtrak site: "Multi-Ride Tickets, which allow you to ride multiple times within a set amount of time, are available in monthly, ten-ride, six-ride and two-ride options. Multi-Ride Tickets are not accepted on all routes. Read the Multi-Ride Tickets terms and conditions for travel, reservation and ticket requirements."
These prices I got today from the amtrak.com site and are between stations PHL and NYP:
$1,350.00 One Monthly Ticket The monthly ticket is valid for unlimited travel for an entire calendar month.
$600.00 One Ten-Ride Ticket The ten-ride ticket is valid for ten rides within a 45-day period.
In June 2011 the costs were $1,260.00 and $560.00 respectively. That's less than a 10% increase over three years. Amtrak ridership keeps increasing, if people are willing to pay, then prices will continue to increase.
You cannot take any Acela trains with these passes, but you can take most Northeast Regional trains. Click here to see what trains you can take with the Monthly Ticket or Ten-Ride Ticket.
