Service Alerts and Notices

Due to high temperatures, Amtrak customers traveling in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions during the summer months may experience slight delays. Extreme heat can impact Amtrak operations by causing rail, bridge and catenary wires to expand. As a safety measure, Amtrak imposes speed restrictions, which require locomotive engineers to operate trains at lower speeds than under normal operating conditions.
Alerts and advisories communicate disruptions and provide advance notice of schedule changes. Our concern for your safety and our regard for high travel standards drives these alerts and advisories. To be notified of service disruptions on the Northeast Corridor follow @AmtrakNECAlerts on Twitter.
