Amtrak Northeast Regional Now Serves Roanoke
Amtrak and its partners are proud to bring passenger rail service back to the Star City for the first time in almost four decades. This is the fourth expansion of Amtrak service in the Commonwealth of Virginia since 2009, following new or additional service to Lynchburg, Richmond, and Norfolk.
The Northeast Regional now extends from Lynchburg and provides a same-seat trip to and from Roanoke. The stop, located at 55 Norfolk Ave., SW, in downtown Roanoke, is an accessible, high-level concrete platform with a canopy. Public parking facilities are available adjacent to the Roanoke station stop.
In addition to the new Roanoke stop, the Northeast Regional makes stops in Charlottesville, Culpepper, Manassas, Alexandria, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, and other cities along the Northeast Corridor.
