Travelers looking to take a scenic train ride through the northeast can now snag two tickets for the price of one with Amtrak’s latest promotion.

Amtrak is hosting a Saturday BOGO (Buy One Get One Free) sale, inviting travelers looking to hit U.S. cities along the Northeast Corridor this summer a chance to get one free adult train ticket when purchasing a ticket.

Travelers can pick from destinations between Washington, D.C. and Boston, with options that include trips between Baltimore and Philadelphia, between New York and Boston, and between New York and Philadelphia.

The deal allows travelers to book trips with a companion for a fraction of the price for travel anytime between May 18 and Sep. 7, giving riders plenty of time to hit popular U.S. stops throughout the summer.

What’s even better is blackout dates don’t apply, meaning travelers can take advantage of savings during upcoming long weekends including Memorial Day and Labor Day.

The promotion, which is available for tickets purchased on either Acela Express or the Northeast Regional, applies to coach seats and can only be booked for passengers who will be riding together under the same itinerary.

Some of the top deals for two passengers currently include $83 rides on the Northeast Regional from New York to Boston ($125 on Acela), $96 trips between New York and Washington, D.C. ($173 on Acela), $60 trips between New York and Philadelphia ($113 on Acela), and $71 trips between New York and Providence, Rhode Island ($119 on Acela).

Riders interested in the deal can head to Amtrak's website and enter the code C222 when booking to apply the deal. The promotion is available until June 5.
