Train Name Route

VERMONTER

[ St. Albans, VT - Springfield, MA - New York, NY - Washington, DC ]


In January 2010, Massachusetts was awarded $70 million in federal stimulus funds for final design and construction of the "Knowledge Corridor" along the Connecticut River in western Massachusetts.  Once completed, Amtrak’s Vermonter service will be rerouted to this line, providing faster service, eliminating a reversal in train direction at Palmer, and restoring service to Northampton and Greenfield.  The Vermonter will make stops at the former Amtrak station in Northampton and a new stimulus-funded intermodal transit center in Greenfield.
