Washington, D.C. — Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today announced that ticket sales are live on the Amtrak.com, the Amtrak app, Amtrak ticket desks and kiosks, and 1-800-VIA-RAIL.
“I am proud to announce that we are one step closer to resuming full service of the Adirondack Line to Montreal by April 3," Stefanik said. "Families in my district rely on the Adirondack Line for transportation, and it serves a significant economic driver, connecting tourists and our Canadian neighbors, to our region. I will continue to work with Amtrak to deliver the return of this important service for Upstate New York and the North Country and look forward to sharing more details soon.”
“Whether you’re experiencing the greatness of New York City, the culture of Montreal or the beauty of the Hudson Valley and Lake Champlain region, the return of the Adirondack provides customers with a reliable, relaxing and sustainable way to travel,” said Amtrak President Roger Harris. “Thanks to the strong support and advocacy of Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, Congresswoman Stefanik and our partners at NYSDOT, VIA Rail and the Federal Railroad Administration, we’re proud to restore service to one of the most popular trains in the Northeast.”
On March 10, Stefanik announced that just one day after her call with the Amtrak President, service for the Adirondack Line will resume by April 3.
For over the past year, Stefanik’s office has been engaged with Amtrak to reopen the Adirondack Line. In July, after Amtrak resumed its Maple Leaf line from New York City to Toronto, Stefanik publicly called for Amtrak to restore the Adirondack line. Since then, her office has been pushing Amtrak to commit to a deadline for reopening.
