Hartford Line Schedule Adjustments to Accommodate Amtrak’s Rail Replacement Project

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) today announced temporary train schedule adjustments effective October 3, 2022, through October 21, 2022, on the Hartford Line (HL) to accommodate Amtrak’s rail replacement project. The rail replacement project consists of three stages of work to replace rail at or near its useful life and keep the railroad in a State of Good Repair. The first stage will replace sections of track in Meriden.


Please note that the rail replacement project will require train time adjustments of up to 10 minutes, and some connecting trains may have changed.


Passengers can find the updated schedule here and are encouraged to visit HartfordLine.com or Amtrak.com for the latest service information. Riders can also sign up for alerts sent directly to their phone or email at HartfordLine.com/service-alerts.


The requirement of wearing a mask on public transportation has been lifted and will no longer be enforced on passenger rail services and facilities in Connecticut. Per current CDC guidelines, wearing a mask is strongly encouraged. Customers who feel sick should not use public transportation.
