Amtrak to restart Adirondack service between New York and Canada

Amtrak has announced the resumption of train service between New York and Montreal via the Adirondack train starting April 3.

In conjunction with VIA Rail Canada (VIA Rail), the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), and other federal agencies, return tickets are now available.


“I’m so excited to celebrate the return of Amtrak Adirondack service connecting New York and Montreal via Albany and the North Country,” said Senator Charles E. Schumer.

“For three years, this vital link connecting New York and Canada has been put on hold due to the pandemic,” Schumer continued. “But from April 3, all of New York will be back on board the Adirondacks.

The first northbound Adirondack train will depart Moynihan Station at New York’s Pennsylvania Station (NYP) at 8:41 a.m. April 3 and arrive at Canada’s Gare Centrale/Central Station in Montreal at 8:16 p.m. for the first time since 2020.

The first southbound Adirondack train will leave Montreal at 11:10 am on April 4 and arrive in New York at 10:15 pm. Other popular destinations on the Adirondacks include Albany-Rensselaer, Poughkeepsie, Saratoga Springs and Schenectady, New York.

“The closure of the Adirondack Line over the years has caused economic damage to many communities along its route,” said Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. “I have urged Amtrak to reopen the line for several months and I am proud to announce that it will reopen ahead of the busy summer travel season.”

In addition to standard entry documentation requirements, the governments of Canada and the United States have several additional protocols that travelers must follow to enter each country.
