Your ticket to ride is now your ticket to shop and dine.  Metro-North Railroad has rolled out a new Rail Rewards program, which gives customers exclusive offers and discounts at Grand Central Terminal shops and restaurants. Most offers are valid through 2019. Metro-North’s Rail Rewards Program gives customers added value and savings to their train ticket.  

By simply showing their ticket, customers can enjoy special deals at some of Grand Central Terminal’s favorite dining and shopping destinations, including: Agern, Art Bird & Whiskey Bar, Aveda Experience Center, Bien Cut, Café Grumpy, Central Market New York, Central Watch, Eata Pita, Grand Central Optical, Irving Farm New York, Jacques Torres Chocolate, LI-Lac Chocolates, Murray’s Cheese, Oliviers & Co, Sushi by Pescatore and Zaro’s Family Bakery.

While the Rail Rewards program is new, for the past twenty-five years, Metro-North has been offering customers an ever-changing range of special travel deals and discounts. The railroad’s Deals & Getaways program gives customers discount packages to over 100 seasonal and year-round attractions, tours, and recreational adventures, easily purchased at full service ticket vending machines or ticket windows.

“The Rail Rewards program and our special Deals & Getaways are small ways for us to demonstrate how much we appreciate our customers and thank them for riding Metro-North,” said Catherine Rinaldi, President of Metro-North Railroad.  “Whether it’s a discount on a cup of frozen hot chocolate, a free facial, or a getaway deal to a dude ranch in the Shawangunk Mountains, we’re committed to finding ways to enhance what it means to be a Metro-North customer.”

“With the new Metro-North Rail Rewards program, customers can now enjoy the very best of Grand Central Terminal for less, with exclusive discounts at over fifteen food, beauty and lifestyle stores,” said Will Lewis, Director of Marketing at Grand Central Terminal. “Whether trying on a new pair of glasses, to grabbing a last-minute snack for the ride home, the offers and stores are conveniently located just moments from the train.”
