Rails to Recovery

Reservations Required at Least Three Days Prior to Travel

Rails to Recovery | Amtrak Discount

If you or a loved one has a serious illness and must travel for specialized medical care, Amtrak reduces the stress and financial burden through its Rails to Recovery program. In partnership with Voices of Hope, a nonprofit organization based in Albany whose mission is to support families touched by life-altering conditions.

Reservations are required and must be made at least three days prior to travel. You must register for the program through one of Voices of Hope’s participating partners. Those groups include the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Ronald McDonald House of the Capital Region and numerous other foundations dedicated to assisting people with serious illnesses.

“This is a life-saving program,” says Sandy Nardoci, Voice of Hope co-founder. “Traveling with a serious illness is a struggle for people, not only physically but also financially. We’re grateful to Amtrak. It makes a difference.”
