1 Keystone Roundtrip Extended to New York

A daily Amtrak Keystone Service roundtrip has been extended to New York.

Starting Oct. 5, Nos. 652 and 641 began operating between New York and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Amtrak said the schedule change now means there are two daily New York-Harrisburg roundtrips.

The route is also served by the New York-Pittsburg Pennsylvanian.

Other Keystone trains operate between Harrisburg and Philadelphia. The service is funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

Some Keystone Service had been suspended in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Keystone Service schedule now reflects 13 weekday roundtrips and seven roundtrips on weekends.

In an unrelated development, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority has begun phasing out the sale of paper ticket sales on its regional rail system. 

Passengers are being encouraged to use SEPTA’s Key Card, a contactless, reloadable fare card.

Paper tickets previously purchased are valid for up to 180 days from their purchase date.
