Amtrak train travel avoids horrors of flying while passengers enjoy beautiful scenery and relaxed spacious comfortable seating.

Summary: Avoid the stresses of flying and relax in comfortable seating with Amtrak. Enjoy picture postcard scenery in all seasons out large windows aboard Amtrak trains. Join Deb Sanderson, Marketing Manager for NY State and Vermont for Amtrak to learn about the See NY and Save 15% campaign as well as the May 18, 2017 NY by Rail Day at Penn Station.

Body: Travel Expert and Radio Show Host Stephanie Abrams talks with Deb Sanderson, Amtrak Marketing Manager for New York State and Vermont who is based at the Albany/Rensselaer, New York Train Station.

Stephanie feels one of the best things about traveling by train is it gives riders a chance to decompress. Deb agrees and explains that train travel feels like a much slower pace than what people are used to in today's busy world. Stephanie describes the New York State train routes she's traveled as beautiful with picturesque scenery regardless of season. Deb says that every season is spectacular and a train trip is a great way to enjoy the variety of New York State's fall foliage or wintery scenes.

Stephanie recounts a few horror stories of flying and extols the virtues and comforts of traveling by train. She says she is still recovering from trauma induced by watching the viral video of Dr. David Dao being dragged off a United Airlines plane in April, 2017. TSA checkpoints and security screening procedures at airports are a deterrent for some travelers and though Deb says that Amtrak police are hard at work and some stations and trains do have a TSA presence, it’s a much less invasive presence than felt at airports.

Stephanie describes a trip she once planned for a friend involving Amtrak and Deb thinks trains are great for traveling with kids. Because there is more space on a train than a bus or plane and unlike a plane, passengers are free to walk around throughout the trip, kids can move about in relative safety because they are still in a sealed but public space. Kids can meet other kids that are traveling and Stephanie says that adults can also meet each other on the trip.

Some of the stations in Deb's region provide great tourist opportunities, such as the Poughkeepsie, New York station which is about a five minute walk to the Walkway Over the Hudson bridge. Montreal and Niagara Falls stations are also within easy reach of good tourist activities.

May 18, 2017 from 7am to 3pm is "New York by Rail Day" at Penn Station which is an event that coincides with the release of the NY State route guide "New York by Rail" which includes information on the destinations that are within easy reach of Amtrak stations throughout New York State, Vermont and Canada. Deb Sanderson explains that the guide's exhibitors and advertisers gather in the main round rotunda at New York City's Penn Station to set up information tables on May 18. She says that exhibitors from all over state are available with collateral and give people in the station information about their venue. The event is always planned before Memorial Day so that it gives people thinking about planning their summer vacations time to incorporate Amtrak and the venues into their plans.

Amtrak has been working to make it easier for train passengers to connect with transportation options once they arrive at the station. Enterprise Rent-A-Car currently offers car rentals at the Hudson, New York and Albany, New York stations. Amtrak is also working with zip car to add service to stations. Amtrak is even looking into bike-sharing rental systems availability at stations.

Amtrak has renewed its 15% See New York and Save discount that it offered during the 2016-2017 season for the 2017-2018 season. The 15% discount applies to travel booked for any stations within New York State plus Montreal, Canada. Travelers must book five days in advance to take advantage of the discount.
