Amtrak Schedule Changes...where to find?
Author: Train29

Just looking at the Amtrak web site. I see nothing about reduced train frequencies. Instead the lead at the top is  is about "face coverings" and below it something about a "Pre-Covid Check List." Guess those issues are more important than actually letting people know their travel plans might be impacted by service cut backs.  I'm booked on the Starlight in March. Trying to find out what days it is still  running. Any insight appreciated.

My bad. Just saw the changes if you look day by day. But nothing that gives the days all in one place making planning easier. Thankfully my departure is running.

Even pre-COVID, Amtrak has often been last minute announcing planned "service interruptions" (a.l.a. Norfolk Southern's annual Birmingham-New Orleans segment for track work affecting the Crescent). If you know when you'd like to make a trip, submit a "trial" reservation. This becomes tedious with multiple segments but it is often worth it to see if your planned travel dales are doable. Shouldn't be this difficult but it is a work-around.

Hoenstly, is anyone home at Amtrak these days? WTF? Seriously? Trains get cancelled for an extended period - going to 5x per week, with the Silver Meteor being axed altogether till 3/27/2022. Why can't Amtrak post a link with these train changes/adjustments. This is MAJOR news for nine states out of the NEC! Come on Amtrak! Stop with guessing games. People get phone calls and need some reference!

This is all from the same mentality as brought you "NO TIMETABLES," for which many here and at the Alphabet Soup Fake Advocacy, NARP/RPA, have "excused" Amtrak.

It might look bad. Also, the young Amtrak employees running the IT probably have no idea why it might be important. If they've ever ridden a train, it was likely a "point to point" trip in the NEC. This is really an issues of the loss of institutional knowledge and mentoring.

Nothing that $66 billion can't fix
