Passengers departing Norfolk, Va., can sleep a little longer as the weekday departure for Northeast Regional Train 84 from the city moves to 6:10 a.m. beginning on Aug. 31. The train now leaves at 5 am. The departure time for Northeast Regional Train 88 will continue to depart at 6:15 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

The new 6:10 a.m. weekday departure is the latest development for the route between Washington, D.C., and Norfolk. The service provides a same-seat trip from Norfolk to Petersburg, Richmond, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and cities as far north as New York City.

“Over 152,000 passengers traveled on Amtrak’s Norfolk inner-city service last year,” said Norfolk Mayor Paul D. Fraim. “I am pleased Amtrak and the Commonwealth have worked together to offer a later weekday departure time and I look forward to their continued partnership offering Amtrak services out of Norfolk.”

Passengers may purchase tickets using Amtrak eTicketing, at a staffed station or at a Quik-TrakSM kiosk. Passengers can also book online, call 800-USA-RAIL, or use a mobile device.
