Infrastructure Renewal at New York Penn Station

New York Penn Station Infrastructure Renewal Program Logo Amtrak is committed to providing a safe and reliable experience for customers who pass through New York's Penn Station. The Infrastructure Renewal at New York Penn Station is a series of major projects that will strengthen and improve operations and preparedness at New York Penn Station.

What Does This Mean For My Commute?

Amtrak, in partnership with NJ TRANSIT and Long Island Rail Road, has developed a maintenance schedule intended to accelerate our ongoing infrastructure renewal efforts and reduce impact on customers throughout the region. A majority of this work will take place during weekends with little or no disruptions to weekday service, however, the more extensive work will take place during the weekdays of July and August, which will cause modifications to train schedules. Amtrak and its partners will plan to operate a modified scheduled July 10 - September 1 to accommodate this work.

Additional work will continue through 2018, with minimal impacts to regular service. We will provide more detail in the coming weeks.

Modified Amtrak Weekday Schedule

The following adjustments to Amtrak's schedule will go into effect from July 10 - September 1:

  • Acela Express: No changes.

  • Northeast Regional Service: Three round trip trains (six total trains) between New York and Washington cancelled. Service between New York and Boston will operate at currently scheduled levels.

  • Keystone Service: Three round trip trains (six total trains) will start and end in Philadelphia, and one round trip train (two total trains) will start/end at Newark. Service between Philadelphia and Harrisburg will operate at currently scheduled levels with the exception of weekday Train 650, which will depart Harrisburg 10 minutes earlier at 11:55 am.

  • Empire Service: Three roundtrip trains (six total trains) will operate between Albany-Rensselaer and Grand Central Terminal (NYG) instead of New York Penn Station (NYP).

  • Long-Distance Service: The Crescent — operating between New York and New Orleans — will originate and terminate in Washington daily during work period. Connections will be provided on other Northeast Corridor trains.

Amtrak's reservation systems have been updated to reflect these schedule changes and any passenger already booked on a train that has been cancelled or altered has been contacted and accommodated on other scheduled service.
