It is rare for travellers to the U.S. to ignore Amtrak-the rail services operated under the National Railroad Passenger Corporation; which is ‘generic’ to train travel in the U.S. Amtrak runs the Acela Express, trailing a popular route across the Northeast corridor. This service connects Boston to New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC and other intermediate cities en route to D.C. from Boston and back. This hourly service operates during peak mornings and busy afternoons. Arriving at the Boston, MA - South Station (BOS) is an experience in itself. The train station, part of the South Station complex is the second busiest transportation hub in New England, next only to the Logan International airport. BOS serves as a junction connecting other intermodal domestic transportation centres, across the Greater Boston region, the North-eastern and Midwestern regions. Positioned on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Red Line subway, the BOS has an approach on the prime Summer Street and Atlantic Avenue in Boston.
