I just received my Rail Travel Privilege Card and cannot find the place where I can see what my benefits are. I've tried the website in the text on the accompanying letter and it gets me nowhere. Please tell me how to access benefit info.

You realize, of course, this site has no relationship to Amtrak. Why not call Amtrak?

If you're wondering what your Rail Travel Benefits are.. Simple.. Red, White, and Blue Policy applies. In corridor service you can "Flashpass" meaning show your RTPC. But since I'll assume you're an employee, all you need is your ID. 

 

To ride Business Class on a Regional Train, or Business Class or First Class on Acela, you'll need to call the 1-800 number to get your index number. They'll ask for your pass number which is your SAP number.

Wow, I never was given an Amtrak Rail Travel Privilege Card ("membership has its privileges" ?). Come to think of it, I don't think I ever got a Welcome Packet when I boarded? Does everyone get a Welcome Packet? Only first class or sleeper class? Only on certain trains/routes ?

I'm pretty sure they're talking about an employees benefit.

Exactly....the modern day equivalent of an old annual pass ...
