Vermont By Train

TRAVEL TO AND WITHIN VERMONT

Vermont’s interstate passenger trains are back in service, and Amtrak is ready to welcome you on the train.

With direct service from Washington, D.C. and connecting service from points west and farther south, the Vermonter offers travelers a scenic ride up and down the east coast with stops in beautiful small towns and big cities alike, all the way to Saint Albans in northern Vermont.

The Ethan Allen Express offers fast service from New York City to Rutland, Vermont without the traffic, and connects with service from Chicago and points west, as well as south from Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and beyond.


Scheduled shuttle bus service from the Albany-Rensselaer Amtrak station in New York provides even more options to reach Manchester, Bennington, Rutland, Middlebury and Burlington from Chicago and beyond, as well as the east coast, including Virginia, Florida and New York City. Please call 800-685-RIDE or visit the Vermont Translines website for more details or information.
