Amtrak Full Restores Service to Hartford Line

In coordination with state partners at the Connecticut and Massachusetts Departments of Transportation, beginning Monday, April 25, Amtrak is restoring service of Amtrak Hartford Line Service trains (operating between New Haven, CT and Springfield, MA via Hartford, CT) in response to anticipated increased demand. Seven total trains will return, including two weekday trains, one Saturday train and four Sunday trains. This restores all Amtrak Hartford Line trains to pre-pandemic (before March 2020) levels.

Currently, Amtrak is operating 14 weekday frequencies between New Haven and Springfield between Monday and Thursday, 13 on Friday, eight on Saturdays, and 11 on Sundays. In addition, there are four weekday frequencies between Greenfield and Springfield, and two frequencies each on Saturday and Sunday. Once the new schedule begins, 29 weekday frequencies will be offered each day between New Haven and Springfield, with nine available on Saturdays and 12 on Sundays.

Being able to easily travel from/to city centers, Amtrak offers free Wi-Fi, the freedom to use phones and electronic devices at all times (no “airplane mode”), the ability to travel with small pets on many trains, large spacious seats with ample leg room, no middle seat, and one of the most generous baggage policies in the travel industry, applicable for two personal items and two carry-on bags.
