Amtrak, in conjunction with VIA Rail Canada (VIA Rail), the state Department of Transportation and other federal agencies, resumed train service between New York City and Montreal via the Adirondack train on Monday, April 3.
It includes a stop in Saratoga Springs.
This milestone marks the return of all Amtrak and VIA Rail cross border service between the United States and Canada for the first time since 2020 and aligns with the growing demand of train travel in both countries.
Northbound Adirondack trains will depart Moynihan Train Hall at New York Penn Station at 8:41 a.m. and arrive in Canada’s Gare Centrale/Central Station in Montreal at 8:16 p.m., with southbound Adirondack trains departing Montreal at 11:10 a.m. and arriving at NYP at 10:15 p.m. Additional popular destinations on the Adirondack besides Saratoga Springs and Schenectady.
“The return of the Adirondack promotes one of many rail initiatives benefiting and connecting American and Canadian travelers and residents,” said Amtrak President Roger Harris. “We are proud to partner with NYSDOT and VIA Rail and thank Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, and Congresswoman Stefanik for championing the Adirondack’s return, as well as their shared commitment with Amtrak to bring more trains to more places and more people as we enter a new era of rail.”
