New route proposed for Ethan Allen Express

Posted: Updated:

A new rail route proposed for the Ethan Allen Express may cut traffic at some New York stations in half.

The Post-Star reports a doubling in operations costs in just three years for the Ethan Allen express is leading rail officials to consider having the line bypass both the Fort Edward and Saratoga Springs stations.

Instead, they would send the trains to Bennington or perhaps even create an entirely new line jointly funded by New York and Vermont.

Neither state has made a decision on the proposal, but officials are expected to begin discussing it by the end of the month.
