New offer grants Northeast Corridor and Midwest riders unlimited digital access to Post content
In an expanded partnership with Amtrak, The Washington Post will be the exclusive news provider for Amtrak trains including Acela Express, Northeast Regional, and all other train services that operate on the Northeast Corridor as well as all Midwest trains. Starting today, customers will have unlimited digital access to The Post’s national news coverage, political analysis, in-depth enterprise reporting, and more while on board.
“People want to be informed in a way that is convenient for them, so we’re always thinking about the best platforms to reach new readers where they are,” said Leili Boroumand, head of business development and partnerships for The Post. “As Amtrak’s sole news partner, we’re thrilled that even more riders can engage with timely and relevant content from The Post while they are traveling.”
When on WiFi-enabled trains traveling on both the Northeast Corridor and in the Midwest, readers can easily read award-winning Post journalism, catch up on the latest breaking news, interact with graphics and view captivating photography.
“Amtrak, like The Washington Post, is committed to providing innovative and enhanced experiences for our customers, so this partnership was a natural fit,” said Jason Molfetas, Executive Vice President Marketing and Business Development. “We are excited to bring the best of The Post to our customers via our complimentary Amtrak Connect WiFi service, from the moment they board the train to the moment they reach their final destination.”
This expanded access builds on The Post’s current partnership with Amtrak that provided unlimited Post digital content for free to Acela Express riders.
