SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Santa Barbara Car Free announced the 20 percent discount for train travel to Santa Barbara.

People traveling from nine Amtrak Stations to Santa Barbara can save by buying their tickets three days in advance on www.santabarbaracarfree.org.

The award-winning program led by the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District will improve the air and get people out of their cars for a more relaxing ride.

Organizers called it a great way to get to the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and Film Feast that starts next week.

The discount runs through mid-December with the exception of some holidays and black out dates.
