On pause for nearly three years due to the pandemic, Amtrak's Adirondack route from New York City to Montreal is finally returning to service on April 3. Passengers and politicians alike had long been pushing for the beloved route's resumption.
The full route is a 10-hour journey from New York Penn-Moynihan Station that weaves through the Hudson River Valley, along Lake Champlain, and into Quebec, making a total of 17 stops before arriving at Montreal's Central Station.
“From Plattsburgh to Poughkeepsie and into Penn Station, the Adirondack Line runs through some of the most beautiful parts of Upstate New York and resumption of this service will help pump vital tourism dollars into Main Streets across Upstate NY,” Schumer said in a statement.
Saratoga Springs will be set to welcome the first set of passengers coming on this railway at the Saratoga Rail Station at 12:28pm. Special remarks will be made prior to the arrival of the train and a special ribbon cutting as the train takes on new passengers heading north!
