Columbus Gets Amtrak Thruway Service

Amtrak has reinstated Thruway bus service between Pittsburgh and Columbus. The bus departs Columbus at 1:10 a.m. and connects with the eastbound Capitol Limited and Pennsylvanian. The bus is scheduled to arrive in Pittsburgh at 4:35 a.m.

The westbound bus departs Pittsburgh at 2 a.m. and offers connections from both the Pennsylvanian and the Capitol Limited. However, the connection from the Pennsylvanian is a long one of six hours.

Tickets can be purchased at, but the online timetables and maps do not yet include the new service.

Greyhound operates the bus, which will use the Columbus Greyhound Station. In Pittsburgh, passengers must walk across Liberty Avenue between the Pittsburgh Amtrak and Greyhound stations to make connections to their trains.
