Amtrak still out of service between Albany and New York City


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Amtrak announced that Empire Service and Ethan Allen Express trains remain canceled between Albany and New York City on Friday. It is unknown at this time if these services will be available by Saturday.

Amtrak suspended much of its transit service in the Northeast corridor from Philadelphia and Boston earlier this week. Public transportation in the regions south of Albany remains spotty in the wake of Ida.

Amtrak says that customers with reservations being disrupted can usually be accommodated on trains with similar departure times or another day. The company says they will waive fees for customers changing their bookies while the schedule is up in the air by calling its reservation center at (800) USA-RAIL.
