New York City - Providence Travel by Train

Skip the Slog of I-95 Traffic. Enjoy Your Own "Mobile Office" with Amtrak.

Madison Square Garden, New York City
Madison Square Garden

You’ll almost always beat the bus from Providence to NYC (or the bus from NYC to Providence) with Amtrak. Avoid congested highways and take in spectacular views instead when you travel from Providence to New York City. The Amtrak Northeast Regional train offers multiple daily departures up and down the Northeast corridor that deliver you from city to city without the stress and delays of traffic. The Providence - New York City route follows the Connecticut coast, offering picturesque vistas of harbors, ships and bridges from your reclining seat.

The ride from downtown Providence to New York Penn Station on the Northeast Regional train averages three and a half hours, while some Providence - NYC bus routes can take over five hours. And the high-speed Amtrak Acela Express train will get you there in less than three hours, an ideal option for the business traveler or someone pressed for time.

Arrive in the center of it all. New York Penn Station is in the heart of the Big Apple, underneath the Madison Square Garden, with hotels, restaurants, attractions and public transit options closeby. 

Amtrak Providence train station is located next to the State House and is walking distance to downtown, with restaurants, hotels and sightseeing spots, museums of all kinds, Brown University and Waterplace Park, where Providence's signature event WaterFire is held May through October, free to the public. So whether you are heading back to school, visiting friends and family or traveling for business, Amtrak makes Providence travel a piece of cake. 

Compared to the bus from Providence to NYC (or the bus from NYC to Providence), the Amtrak Northeast Regional experience is like having your own mobile office - equipped with free Wi-Fi®, at-seat outlets for your mobile devices, fold-down trays and overhead storage for your luggage. Stay productive or take a power nap before you arrive in the city. Feeling social instead? You'll likely rub elbows with passengers from all over the world on your journey.

Book your tickets online, through our mobile applications, 24 hours by phone or at the station. If you buy 14 days in advance, you'll save 25% off the lowest available fares on the Northeast Regional train. There's no special discount code; simply choose your passenger type when booking to receive the discounted fare.

Last but not least, don't miss our best hotel and car rental deals as well as prearranged things to do in your travel destination.
