Take the Train to Virginia

Richmond – Explore Virginia’s Capital

Also known as the River City, Richmond, Virginia is the perfect spot to spend time outdoors. Whether you want to raft on the James River or bike the Virginia Capital Trail, there’s an opportunity for every nature-lover to have fun. If you need to fuel up after your excursion, check out one of the many restaurants in the area — we promise you won’t be able to try them all. Once it’s time to take a break from your outdoor adventures, stop by a museum like the VMFA, where the permanent collection includes over 33,000 works of art.

Getting There

Take the train to the Richmond - Main Street Station (RVM) if you want to be in the heart of the city, or to the Richmond - Staples Mill Road Station (RVR), where you’re just a cab ride away.

Main Street Station

Amtrak Virginia is excited to announce expanded service to Richmond - Main Street Station. Starting September 27, there will be three daily departures and arrivals at Richmond Main Street Station. The service expansion includes a new morning departure north to DC and traveling as far north as Boston, as well as an evening arrival from New York to Main Street Station.

Bring Your Bike

Ride the rails, then ride your bicycle once you reach your scenic Virginia destination. Amtrak offers carry-on bike services on select trains for an additional $20 fee. Make a reservation when booking your ticket.
