The proposal for another daily round-trip train between Pittsburgh and New York City is projected for the fiscal year from October 2023 through September 2024, in the Pennsylvania State Rail Plan 2020. That plan was developed by PennDOT from fall 2019 through fall 2020 with input from state and local officials, freight carriers, commuter rail providers, Amtrak and rail passenger organizations.

The feasibility of adding another daily passenger train to travel 440 miles from Pittsburgh to New York City, the schedule for such a train and projected costs are still under evaluation by Norfolk Southern Corp., said Ashley Schoch, PennDOT spokeswoman.
