Amtrak is announcing preliminary schedules as part of the Infrastructure Renewal at New York Penn Station, a series of major track and switch renewal projects that will strengthen railroad infrastructure, operations and preparedness and, ultimately improve reliability at America's busiest rail hub.
The Infrastructure Renewal work accelerates several years of already planned improvements to track, switch and other infrastructure at Penn Station to improve track conditions. The major work will require Amtrak and its commuter partners at the Long Island Rail Road and NJ Transit to operate on a modified schedule from July 10 September 1, 2017. Additional work will last through approximately June 2018, with most of it taking place on weekends, resulting in minimal impacts to service.
The following service adjustments have been made to the Amtrak weekday schedule from July 10 September 1, 2017. The Amtrak reservation systems have been updated to reflect these schedule changes and any customer booked on a train that has been canceled or altered will be contacted and accommodated on other scheduled services.
The following resources are available for all Amtrak customers:
