Amtrak to Resume Acela Service Between Boston and Washington, DC

Returning June 1, Amtrak is restoring selected Acela service schedules along the Northeast Corridor between Boston, New York City, and Washington, DC. In response to anticipated increased demand, modified service will include the restoration of three weekday Acela roundtrips. Northeast Regional frequencies along the same corridor will also be increased from eight to 10 roundtrips.

“We are dedicated to doing everything possible to return service safely. We want everyone to feel comfortable as they navigate this new normal,” said Amtrak President and CEO Bill Flynn.

Amtrak continues to take extra steps to sanitize stations and trains including facial coverings, limiting the number of seats for sale, cashless service, physical distancing, and more.

Tickets are currently for sale and can be found, along with current schedules on Amtrak.com.
