Amtrak Service to Canada Remains Suspended

Amtrak service between the United States and Canada remains suspended despite the re-opening of the border between the two nations.

A report on the website of Railfan and Railroad quoted Amtrak officials as saying they are working with government officials to resume cross-border service by the Maple Leaf (New York-Toronto), Adirondack (New York-Montreal) and Cascades (Seattle-Vancouver)

Although those trains continue to operate within the United States, their Canadian segments were suspended early in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Amtrak indicated it needs to establish procedures to ensure that passengers meet current travel requirements.

For example, Canada requires American travelers to have received the COVID-19 vaccine and show proof of a negative COVID test.

An Amtrak statement did not provide a time frame for resume service to Canada.
