Amtrak’s newly dedicated Thruway Motor Coach service will establish two Eastern North Carolina routes -- one serving the communities of Greenville, New Bern, Havelock and Morehead City, and a second serving Goldsboro, Kinston, Jacksonville and Wilmington. Both routes will connect with the Amtrak Palmetto train service at the Amtrak Station in Wilson, N.C.
The Palmetto operates twice daily serving 20 stations between New York and Savannah, Ga., and also provides access to the Amtrak national network serving more than 500 stations in 46 states, the District of Columbia and three Canadian provinces. The new Thruway Service routes will provide service to colleges and universities, major military installations, and a number of cities and communities that have limited intercity public transportation options. Amtrak will announce the official schedule, start date and pricing when finalized.
