      The terms and conditions exclude the following routes, Emmajean Wilder:

      Valid for travel on all reserved service, no upgrades permitted. Not valid on unreserved service which includes the Capitol Corridor, Hiawatha, Pacific Surfliner, Unreserved sections of the Pennsylvanian and Keystone Service and 7000-8999 Thruways.
