Stefanik calls for ETA on Amtrak’s return to North Country
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (WCAX) - With the holidays upon us, people are taking trains, planes and automobiles for their travel plans, but options are more limited in New York’s North Country. Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is pushing Amtrak to resume the Adirondack Line.
Stefanik wants Amtrak to commit to a timeline to reopen the line from Albany to Montreal that has been closed since the onset of the pandemic.
Stefanik, R-New York, says a vague mention of spring 2023 isn’t enough and that Amtrak needs to make a full commitment to resuming service because “families in Upstate New York and the North Country deserve certainty.”
