Amtrak Service in Virginia

In 2016, Amtrak Virginia trains carried 837,464 passengers, with total ticket revenues of $51.3 million.  In 2008, Congress enacted the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act (PRIIA), authorizing states to take financial responsibility for the operating costs for all routes less than 750 miles in length.  

Virginia sponsors four Amtrak Northeast Regional corridors: Washington-Lynchburg (Rt. 46), Washington-Newport News (Rt. 47), Washington-Norfolk (Rt. 50) and Washington - Richmond (Rt. 51) – which consists of six round-trips per day using 12 train sets.   Depending on the day, those 12 trains have different numbers.  With 21 stations to choose from, Virginia makes it easy to travel within the Commonwealth or to destinations in the Northeast Corridor like Washington, D.C., New York City, and Boston. 

In the fall of 2017, DRPT will extend the Washington-Lynchburg service to Roanoke.  Two additional frequencies of the Washington-Norfolk route are also planned in 2019 and 2022.

The train numbers are listed below per route:

Lynchburg, Rt. 46 – Trains 145, 147, 156, 171, 176

Newport News, Rt. 47 – Trains 66, 67, 78, 83, 94, 95, 99, and 194

Norfolk, Rt. 50 – Trains 71, 88, 125, 157, and 174

Richmond, Rt. 51 – Trains 82, 84, 85, 86, 87, 93, 164, and 195
