Amtrak will continue to operate a modified schedule on the Northeast Corridor Wednesday, Jan. 8, as a result of the extreme cold affecting much of the country.
Acela Express and Northeast Regional service will operate between Washington and Boston with reduced frequencies. Schedule changes are also anticipated for Empire Service between New York City and points West of Albany along with Keystone Service between Harrisburg, Pa. and New York.
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.
Passengers who have paid but choose not to travel due to this service disruption can receive a refund or a voucher for future travel. Some reservations booked online can be modified or canceled on Amtrak.com or by using the free Amtrak mobile app.
Amtrak regrets any inconvenience. This information is correct as of the above time and date. Information is subject to change as conditions warrant. Passengers are encouraged to call 800-USA-RAIL or visit Amtrak.com/alerts for Service Alerts and Passenger Notices.
