Rails to Recovery

If you or a loved one has a life-threatening illness and must travel for specialized medical care, Amtrak reduces the stress and financial burden through its Rails To Recovery program.

Amtrak works in partnership with Voices of Hope, a nonprofit based in Albany whose mission is to support families touched by life-altering conditions.

Amtrak offers two-for-one tickets on its Adirondack, Empire Service, Ethan Allen Express and Maple Leaf routes. 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.
