Ride Amtrak for half-price with your college-bound kid.

from Reader's Digest Magazine | May 2007

Here’s some advice for college-bound kids: Go east, young man. Go west, young woman. Or north or south, wherever Amtrak trains run, and take Mom or Dad along for 50 percent off. One parent of each prospective college student can ride for half-price when traveling together to check out colleges and universities. To qualify, go to and book your tickets in advance.
