By the year 2016, 90% of passengers will have free Wi-fi access. Auto Train allows passengers to travel with their personal vehicles including cars, vans, SUVs and motorcycles between the Washington, D.C. area and Florida, and stands as the first long-distance Amtrak train to provide Wi-Fi.
“This new amenity marks an important milestone in our ongoing commitment to improving the passenger experience,” said Mark Murphy, Senior Vice President and General Manager Long Distance. “The availability of Wi-Fi provides the connectivity passengers expect while traveling and demonstrates yet another reason why Amtrak is a smarter way to travel.”
To celebrate this momentous occasion, Amtrak is offering its passengers a special $95 Saver Fare aboard Auto Train.
