Amtrak has announced a new discount train travel program for students.

With a valid student ID, students between the ages of 17 and 25 will be given a 15 percent discount on their train ticket. The discounted tickets must be purchased at least three days in advance of the travel date.

The new Student Discount Program will replace the membership-only Student Advantage and International Student Identity Card 10% discount programs, which have respective end dates of May 15 and August 15, 2016.

The new program will also replace the North Carolina 15% student discount program, which expires on June 30, 2016.
