Amtrak Train, Boston: 13 reviews and 12 photos

When I went to college one of of my many options for visiting home was taking the train. I ruled out taking the train, Amtrak, because it was expensive. After researching the Amtrak New York City to Boston routes recently, I realized that its still expensive and also takes just as much time as driving to Boston. The cheapest trains from NYC to Boston will run you about $108 for a regular train and over $200 for the Acela trains and taking the train isn't any quicker than driving, it still takes anywhere from 3.5 to nearly 4 hours. Taking the train isn't a very cost effective mode of transportation from NYC to Boston for an individual or a family.
