canceling all service between New York and Boston for Saturday, Feb. 9. In addition,
Springfield Shuttle

track of snow and downed trees as well as making necessary repairs to restore
train operations following the severe winter storm that impacted the Northeast.
Also, ridership counts are low as road conditions make travel to stations
difficult.

Philadelphia and Harrisburg. Passengers should
check Amtrak.com or call 800- USA-RAIL for additional information.

disruption can receive a refund or a voucher for future travel. Some tickets
booked online that have not yet been printed can be modified or canceled on
Amtrak.com or by using the free Amtrak mobile app.
