Trailways of New York adds service to Montreal in response to suspended Amtrak service

Trailways of New York is stepping in to help passengers after Amtrak suspended service on its Adirondack train between Albany and Montreal, just weeks after reopening the route. 

The train route between New York City and Montreal reopened in April after being closed for three years due to the pandemic. Amtrak says it is suspending the service north of Albany because of track conditions near Montreal.

Trailways of New York says it has added new service to and from Montreal to meet consumer demand in the wake of Amtrak’s suspension of service.

“Passengers who know our affordable, comfortable, and eco-friendly service will be delighted to learn we’ve added more daily trips to help the impacted market. With air travel snarled by equipment, weather and personnel issues and Amtrak suspending service – we felt the right thing to do was to add service effective immediately,” said Nick Crist, Vice President of Operations and Safety.

The additional service brings Trailways of New York’s total number of daily trips to and from Montreal to 10 – far more than any other transportation provider. The service uses state-of-the-art, low-emission motorcoaches that feature complimentary Wi-Fi, electrical outlets, on-board restrooms, and seating for persons with disabilities.

Six daily trips will provide direct service from Montreal to New York City and most other American cities via connection; Ridgewood, New Jersey; and the New York cities of Plattsburgh, Glens Falls, Saratoga Springs, Albany (with stops downtown, at the airport, and at SUNY Albany),  Catskill, Kingston, and New Paltz.
