    Does Amtrak still offer AAA member discount? I remember it offered something like that last time I traveled by train.

    Amtrak has discontinued offering a AAA discount, as well as others, and has raised the age for the senior discount.

    The dollar amount stated in FastTrain’s post is the annual membership fee for RPA. If your actual discount is going to be less than that it may not be worthwhile to join just for the discount. Of course RPA has other useful things to offer too.

    Thanks, I should have made that clearer in post that I was talking membership fees and not the discount.

    Unless you are taking a long distance trip; joining RPA just for the discount may not prove a good investment. I believe that joining RPA is worthwhile to support the only voice in Washington that rail passengers have.
