If you were planning on taking the Amtrak or Megabus to New York City from the Albany area, you’ll have to cancel your plans. Both have suspended service at least through Tuesday the 30th of October and perhaps longer depending on what Sandy leaves behind.

Amtrak is actually canceling nearly all of their service in the Northeast until the storm passes. Here’s their official statement:

The predicted landfall of Hurricane Sandy, with associated high winds and heavy rains in the mid-Atlantic region, combined with emergency declarations in several states, has led Amtrak to cancel Northeast Corridor service north of New York starting at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 28, and to cancel nearly all service on the eastern seaboard on Monday, October 29.

 

All Acela Express, Northeast Regional, Keystone and Shuttle services are canceled for trains originating on that date. Also Empire Service, Adirondack, Vermonter, Ethan Allen and Pennsylvanian train services are suspended, along with the overnight Auto Train, Capitol Limited, Crescent, Lake Shore Limited, Palmetto and Silver Meteor trains.

 

Exceptions: The Maple Leaf (Trains 63 & 64), will operate only between Toronto, Ontario, Canada and Albany-Rensselaer, N.Y., rather than originating and terminating at New York City; the Carolinian (Trains 79 & 80), will operate only between Charlotte and Raleigh rather than originating and terminating in New York City; the Silver Star (Trains 91 & 92) will operate only between Jacksonville, Tampa and Miami, Fla., rather than originating and terminating in New York City.

 

Amtrak Thruway Bus Services associated with these canceled trains are also suspended.

 

Alternate transportation for canceled services is not available.

 

Dates for service restorations are pending.

Megabus also has many cancelations along the eastern seaboard on their site.
