"Thousands of New Yorkers rely on Amtrak service for their daily commute or long-distance travel. I'm outraged that service between Albany and New York City has been suspended for so long, especially as we approach some of the busiest travel days of the year during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. While we know it can be difficult to repair aging infrastructure, a delay of this length is unacceptable.
"Today I will be deploying senior leaders of my Administration, including from the Department of Transportation, Division of Homeland Security, and Emergency Services, and my Director of State Operations and Infrastructure, to join New York City and Amtrak officials for a visit to the site that is causing these problems and determine a path forward. We need to help New Yorkers get back on track."
