Ethan Allen Express

Rutland - Albany - New York
Ethan Allen Express Route Map
Daily Service between New York City and Rutland, Vermont, by way of Albany

From all the outdoor adventures of upstate New York and Vermont, to miles of wilderness, the Ethan Allen Express takes you to the scenic Hudson River Valley, spring skiing, summer wildflowers and fabulous fall foliage. In the winter, take an easy Thruway bus connection to Okemo.

Walkable Downtowns

Once you step off the train, there's easy access to Vermont's downtown hotels, B&B's and inns. There's no need for shuttles or layovers upon arrival. Vermont's downtowns are home to unique local businesses, locavore restaurants, historic architecture, as well as rich cultural and social activities.

Arrive on Time

There's no worries about road construction, traffic or weather delays when you're leisurely enjoying the views of the Hudson River Valley and Vermont's farms, villages and Green Mountains. The Ethan Allen Express connects you to year-round outdoor adventures. Go ahead, skip the cab ride and go for the train.

Enjoy the Journey

Ride in comfort and take in the scenery and amenities. Whether you're from Washington, DC, Philadelphia, New York or anywhere along the way, the scenic route is by train. For your convenience, light fare, snacks and beverages are available in the Café Car. For added comfort, reserve a Business Class seat and enjoy a fully refundable ticket if canceled prior to departure, 25% point bonus for Amtrak Guest Rewards members, leather seating with footrests and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages.
