Amtrak Cancels New York – Boston Service for Saturday, Feb. 9

Posted: Updated:

Richmond, VA - Amtrak is canceling all service between New York and Boston for Saturday, Feb. 9. In addition, Springfield Shuttle service (New Haven, Conn. - Springfield, Mass.) is canceled today. Downeaster service (Brunswick, Maine - Boston) is to be determined.

Amtrak crews have been working through the night and this morning continue to clear track of snow and downed trees as well as making necessary repairs to restore train operations following the severe winter storm that impacted the Northeast. Also, ridership counts are low as road conditions make travel to stations difficult.

Amtrak is operating Northeast Corridor services between New York and Washington, Empire Service between New York and Albany and Keystone Service between New York, Philadelphia and Harrisburg. Passengers should check Amtrak.com or call 800- USA-RAIL for additional information.
Information about Amtrak service for Sunday, Feb. 10 will be made available later today.

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 tickets booked online that have not yet been printed can be modified or canceled on Amtrak.com or by using the free Amtrak mobile app.

To be notified of major service disruptions resulting in delays of 60 minutes or more to multiple trains on the Northeast Corridor, follow @AmtrakNEC on Twitter.

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. Schedule information and train status updates are available at the Amtrak.com home page.
