With a second major storm arriving on the East Coast in less than a week, Amtrak has significantly reduced Northeast Corridor schedules for today (Wednesday, March 7).

Trains cancelled today include 27 Acela Express trips and nine Northeast Regional trains (with another operating only between Washington, D.C., and New York City). Also experiencing cancellations are New York-Philadelphia-Harrisburg Keystone Service (eight trains), and New York-Albany/Rensselaer Empire Service trains (eight trains).

Current forecasts call for 7 to 11 inches of snow in the New York City area.

Full details are available on the Amtrak website.

NJ Transit is also operating a limited rail schedule because of the weather, as is MTA’s Metro-North. Check websites for details.
