Downeaster to run more trains from Maine to Boston soon
BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) - The Amtrak train that provides service from Maine to Boston will soon add more round trips as part of its service restoration.
The Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority said Tuesday the Downeaster would begin operating four round-trip trains between Brunswick, Maine, and Boston every day starting July 20.
The move is part of the service’s restoration in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, which has disrupted train travel in New England and around the country.
Amtrak says trains will be sanitized and disinfected every day with enhanced cleaning between trips.
