About Amtrak Northeast Regional

The Northeast Regional is a passenger rail service operated by Amtrak that connects 48 cities in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. The service runs between Boston, MA and Virginia Beach, VA, with stops at several key destinations across the East Coast, including New York City, Washington D.C., Providence and Hartford.

As the more affordable of the two train lines that connect New York City with Boston and D.C.

Trains run multiple times per day in either direction, transporting over 20,000 passengers on a daily basis. Northeast Regional train ticket prices start from €1.71 depending on the route.
