Penn Station’s Central Departure Board

Amtrak announced that it resumed regular weekday schedules at New York’s Penn Station on September 5, following the train operator’s two-month long Infrastructure Renewal Program.

Repairs began after two derailments occurred at the station earlier this year, one on March 24 and the other on April 3.

During the renewal program, Amtrak, which owns and operates Penn Station, cancelled three daily trains in each direction between Pen Station and Union Station in Washington, D.C.

The railroad also operated six of its Empire Service trains out of New York’s Grand Central Terminal during the repairs this summer.

In addition to the resumption of regular weekday schedules at the New York station, Amtrak is offering a new promotion, Double Days, this fall. Between September 18 and November 18, members of Amtrak’s Guest Rewards loyalty program will earn twice the points when traveling on Amtrak.
