BOGO Vouchers Available for Amtrak Cascades Line

Amtrak Cascades is offering a two-for-one Companion Fare promotion between now and April 23, 2020. The promotion is a “buy one, get one” for regular adult fares anywhere on the Amtrak Cascades line between Eugene, Oregon to Vancouver, British Columbia. Tickets must be purchased online; the promotion does not apply to tickets purchased by phone or at Amtrak stations. The discount applies to regular COACH fare adult tickets, not to Business Class or sleeper car tickets.

Passengers will need a special discount code to order tickets online, and certain blackout dates apply, including around the holidays. The promotion requires advance reservations, and passengers traveling through to Canada must have a U.S. passport. Children 2-12 years old may travel at half the regular adult fare but the “buy one, get one” promotion does not apply.

All required information is summarized on a voucher that is available through Benton County Rural/Special Transportation. Email or call 541-754-1759 to receive your Amtrak BOGO voucher, as well as an Amtrak travel planning brochure. If leaving a message or sending an email, we require your full name and your street mailing address. Vouchers and trip planners will be sent out same day via postal mail Monday through Friday.  Limited quantities are available and will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.

When planning your trip from Corvallis to and from the Albany Amtrak Station, be sure to use the Amtrak Connector bus service. There are 5 round-trips daily Thursday through Monday to connect all Northbound trains, and some Southbound trains and thruway buses, with convenient pick-up locations in Corvallis – however, the Connector will operate every day during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s holiday weeks. Fare is just $5.00 one-way. Save money by purchasing 5 tickets for $20 or 10 tickets for $30. To buy tickets, or get a schedule please visit or email
