How to Fast Travel in Red Dead Redemption 2

Can you fast travel in Red Dead Redemption 2? Well, yes, but if you’ve played a Rockstar title with a vast open world, then you might have noticed that they implement the fast travel mechanic quite subtly and without breaking your immersion into the beautifully designed world. It is much faster than your horse can take you and since it might not be immediately apparent, here’s how to fast travel in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Fast Travel Guide

First, you need to learn how to unlock fast travel in Red Dead Redemption 2. To do this, open your map and find the location of a Stagecoach. It has an icon that looks much like a signpost. Take your trusty steed there, if it’s a bit far off, and head inside to talk to the Station Clerk.

He will have options for you;

  • Send mail
  • Receive Mail
  • Train Tickets
  • Pay Bounty

What you’re interested in is the Train Tickets option, so pick that one.

Next, you’ll get a list of Train Stations that you have unlocked through your travels.

You will notice that there’s a price listed next to each Station, with the ride being more expensive, the further away the Station is, just like real life travel.

Choose a station, pay the toll, and the game will cut to a cinematic showing a train traveling across the land. Admittedly not the fastest fast travel mechanic out there but it saves you a long, treacherous trip on your horse and does so without a jarring break of immersion in the experience. Be warned though, that your horse doesn’t fast travel with you, he only spawns when you launch a mission, so until that happens, I guess it’s a horse bandit’s life for you.

Fast Travelling to Arthur’s Quarters at a Cost

There is a faster, immersion-breaking method of fast travel too. To unlock this fast travel method in RDR2, you will need to head to the Van der Linde camp and go to the back of Dutch’s quarters. You will find a ledger with the option to contribute to the settlement. Look at the Lodging Section where, under Next in Line, you’ll find a line that says, “Arthur wants a map to help plan journeys.” This option will set you back $325, but it will put a fast-travel map at the back of Arthur’s quarters.
