The Amtrak winter flash sale applies to both regular Amtrak trips and Acela express trips. The latest winter sale is applicable to select routes, including Northeast travel between Boston and NYC. It applies to one-way and round-trip tickets.
Tickets between Boston and Manhattan start from just $17 one-way, meaning you can travel round trip to New York for $34. Almost as much as it costs for a reduced one-way trip rate of $31.

The nationwide deal also applies to Amtrak’s West Coast and Midwest lines, meaning reduced fares in cities like Chicago, Dallas, Portland, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Seattle, Sacramento, and more!
Traveling with Acela
Acela trains travel up to 150 MPH, but generally average out at 70 MPH! Still not as fast as the proposed bullet train to connect Manhattan and Boston, but fast enough to shave about 30 to 60 minutes off of your commute. Plus, with reserved seating there is no frantic rush to the train.
