Empire Service

New York - Albany - Syracuse - Rochester - Buffalo - Niagara Falls
close
Convenient Daily Train Service throughout the Empire State

With frequent daily trains between NYC and Albany (and others that continue to Buffalo and Niagara Falls), business and leisure travel has never been easier.

You can do almost anything in New York City, but when it's time to get out in the country, head north to the Hudson River Valley for a vacation in the wine country. Take the Empire Service to the Finger Lakes region or continue all the way to Buffalo and Niagara Falls.
