Amtrak modifies Thursday schedules

Amtrak will operate on a modified schedule Thursday due to the winter storm.

Acela Express (Washington – Boston), Northeast Regional service (Boston – Lynchburg/Newport News/Norfolk), Keystone Service (New York – Harrisburg, Pa.) and Empire Service (New York – Albany, N.Y.) will all operate at reduced frequencies or modified schedules.

In addition, the following long-distance services originating on Feb. 13 are canceled:  Crescent (New York – New Orleans), Auto Train (Lorton, Va. – Sanford, Fla.), Carolinian (New York – Charlotte), Palmetto (New York – Savannah) and Piedmont (Raleigh – Charlotte).  Additionally, the Silver Meteor (New York – Miami) Train 98 is canceled and the Silver Star will only operate between Jacksonville, Fla., and Miami.  Amtrak Thruway Bus services associated with canceled trains will not operate.

Amtrak Downeaster (Brunswick, Maine – Boston) and the Springfield Shuttle (New Haven, Conn. – Springfield, Mass.) are not affected and are expected to operate a normal schedule.

Passengers holding reservations that require modification are being accommodated on other trains and proactively notified by Amtrak Customer Service.

Passengers with travel plans can confirm their train’s status, change their plans or review refund information using a range of tools – including Amtrak.com, smartphone apps or by calling 800-USA-RAIL. Service Alerts, Passenger Notices and other announcements are posted at Amtrak.com/alerts
