Amtrak cancels Tuesday services on Northeast corridor

As Hurricane Sandy approaches, Amtrak has canceled all services in the Northeast Corridor through Tuesday, Oct. 30.

All Acela Express, Northeast Regional, Keystone and Shuttle services are canceled for trains originating on that date. Also Empire Service, Adirondack, Vermonter, Ethan Allen and Pennsylvanian train services are suspended, along with the overnight Auto Train, Capitol Limited, Crescent, Lake Shore Limited, Palmetto and Silver Meteor trains.

The result is the suspension of all Amtrak service from Boston south to Raleigh, North Carolina, and from the East Coast to Chicago, New Orleans and Florida. Amtrak stations in the affected areas and along the affected routes should be considered closed.

Exceptions: The Carolinian (Trains 79 & 80) will operate only between Charlotte and Raleigh rather than originating and terminating in New York City and Piedmont service (Trains 73-76) within North Carolina will operate normally.

The Silver Star (Trains 91 & 92) will operate only between Jacksonville, Tampa and Miami, Fla., rather than originating and terminating in New York City.

The Maple Leaf (Trains 63 & 64) will operate only between Toronto, Ontario, Canada and Albany-Rensselaer, N.Y., rather than originating and terminating at New York City.

The Cardinal (Train 50) will operate only between Chicago and Indianapolis, rather than terminating in New York City.

Amtrak Thruway Bus Services associated with these canceled trains are also suspended. Alternate transportation for canceled services is not available. 

Dates for service restorations are pending. 

While Amtrak will be contacting passengers who have provided information in their reservations, customers are encouraged to monitor and those Northeast Corridor passengers on Acela Express, Northeast Regional or Keystone Service trains can follow @AmtrakNEC on Twitter to be notified when updates are posted on Amtrak will also be providing updates on the and pages.
