Due to the winter storm forecast to impact the Northeast Corridor, Amtrak will operate a modified schedule for the remainder of Monday, Jan. 26.

Acela Express and Northeast Regional service will operate between Boston and Washington; however, passengers should expect reduced frequencies, mainly north of New York.

Corridor services, including Keystone Service (New York – Harrisburg, Pa.), Empire Service (New York – Albany, N.Y.), Amtrak Downeaster (Brunswick, Maine – Boston) and the Springfield Shuttle (New Haven, Conn. – Springfield, Mass.), will operate as scheduled.

Passengers holding reservations that require modification are being accommodated on other trains and proactively notified by Amtrak Customer Service. A range of tools, including Amtrak.com, smartphone apps and 1-800-USA-RAIL, are available to assist in travel planning.

Amtrak is actively monitoring this severe winter storm and will provide an update on Tuesday’s service later today.

To prepare and respond to this severe winter storm, Amtrak has added additional mechanical, engineering and operational forces, positioned diesel locomotives and on-track maintenance equipment, and added tree trimming crews to quickly respond to potential problems.

Amtrak’s top priority is the safety of our passengers, employees and the traveling public.  Anyone planning to travel during the storm is urged to allow extra time and be extremely careful in and around stations, on platforms and on-board trains.

Amtrak regrets any inconvenience. This information is correct as of the above time and date. Information is subject to change as conditions warrant.

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.
