Home for the Holidays with Amtrak San Joaquins

December 9, 2022

The holiday season is here; finals are over, there is no more studying to be had, and the only reading in your future is hopefully, this blog (we promise it’s worth it). 

We’re excited to get the ball rolling on all things festive–like going home for the holidays and cozying up by the fire without a care in the world. If you’re traveling home for the holidays, you might want to think about traveling with Amtrak San Joaquins. 


When you travel with San Joaquins, you set yourself apart from the crowd. Taking the train means you are part of the eco-conscious, money-saving, freedom-loving crowd. Why wait to snag a ride with a hometown friend or stress on how much traffic will set back your arrival time when you can skip all of that and ride home via train or Thruway Bus? With stops right by several California universities, do yourself a favor and make traveling home easy. You’ll be thankful that you did when you’re able to spend that travel time surfing the web, catching up with friends, and relaxing in our ever-so-cozy train seats. Plus–is there a better way to get into the notalgia of the holiday season than by traveling old-school in a train and rewatching The Polar Express? We think not!

Amtrak San Joaquins is here to make traveling a breeze and as a student, there are two ways to save when traveling home for the holidays (and all the days). Option 1 is for our frequent travelers: you can get 30% off tickets with Amtrak’s 6TIX Student Pass! And for our not so frequent travelers, take 15% off with our Student Discount! Just use the discount code V353 when booking your trip for savings on the best form of travel in town. Don’t wait, book your trip home today!
