Digital Newspapers Come to Select Amtrak Trains

August 15, 2015

Amtrak will offer free digital newspapers for business class and first class passengers on select trains beginning Aug. 17.

The service will not be available on any long-distance or Midwest corridor trains, but will be offered on the Pittsburgh-New York Pennsylvanian, the New York-Toronto Maple Leaf and on New York-Niagara Falls, New York Empire Service trains.

Passengers will have free unlimited access to The New York Times and The Washington Post.

To access digital newspapers, visit the AmtrakConnect page, click on the entertainment tab, and choose either The New York Times or The Washington Post.

Then, enter the access code located on a card in your seat back pocket. Acela Express passengers will not need a code to access digital newspapers.

Amtrak said it will discontinue offering hard copy newspapers on board trains for which digital service is available.

Other trains that will have digital newspaper service include Acela Express, Northeast Regional, Downeaster service, Carolinian, Ethan Allen Express, Vermonter, and Palmetto.
