The Empire State Passengers Association is calling on the New York State Department of Transportation to restore the pre-COVID Amtrak schedule to the Empire Corridor Trains.

Train 280 is the early morning eastbound train originating in Niagara Falls and Train 63 is the early morning westbound train originating in New York City.

With the two trains still suspended, morning train travel and connections west of Albany are prevented.

The association says they want this fixed ahead of the busy summer season.

The passenger association also announced New York and Vermont will restore service on the Ethan Allen Train to Rutland on July 19.
