Turn 50, Travel Free

Alaska Railroad offers free rail travel to anyone born in 1959

The Alaska Railroad is offering one free day of rail travel in 2009 to anyone born in 1959 (the same year Alaska turns 50).

“The Alaska Railroad is proud to share a long tradition with the people of Alaska, and what better way to extend our happy birthday wishes than by inviting, as our guests, all those who share this important milestone year,” said Susie Kiger, passenger sales and marketing director.

The Turn 50 With Us offer is valid for travel in Adventure Class Service on Denali Star, Coastal Classic, Glacier Discovery, Hurricane, and Aurora Winter train. Travel can be roundtrip or one-way, as long as it occurs over the course of one day.

To qualify for the program the client’s birth date must fall on or be between January 1, 1959 and December 31, 1959. Travel need not occur on the passenger’s birthday, only during the birthday year.
