Amtrak Adds Roanoke Stop to Northeast Regional Service

Beginning October 31, 2017, Amtrak will add Roanoke, Va., (RNK) as a stop on its Northeast Regional service.

Tickets are now available to purchase for the stop in downtown Roanoke, where passengers will find a newly constructed, canopied passenger platform located at 55 Norfolk Ave., SW. Parking facilities are available adjacent to the Roanoke station stop.

The new stop, made possible through a partnership by Amtrak, the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) and the city of Roanoke, is the first time in four decades that rail service is available to the city.
