The Berkshire Flyer, which was introduced in July, will be operating every weekend from Friday, May 26, through Monday, October 9. On Fridays, trains leave New York Penn Station at 3:16 pm and arrive at Pittsfield, Massachusetts' Joseph Scelsi Intermodal Transportation Center at 7:12 pm. (Yes, precise, we are aware.) Every Sunday at 3 pm, return trains leave Pittsfield and arrive back in New York City at 7:05 pm.

Eight stops are made along the way, including New York, NY – Moynihan Train Hall, Yonkers, Croton-Harmon, Poughkeepsie, Rhinecliff, Hudson, Albany-Rensselaer, and Pittsfield. The train route continues north from New York City through upstate New York. It takes four hours and five minutes to complete the trek.

Berkshires Are Well-Liked Summertime Getaway

The Berkshires are a well-liked summertime getaway for city people who want to experience the area's natural beauty through outdoor activities including hiking trails and river walks, kayaking and paddle boarding, and more. The Berkshires span western Massachusetts and northwestern Connecticut. The area's numerous small towns and villages are home to numerous museums of modern art, historical buildings, attractive gardens, live theater, and other attractions.

The Tickets Start From $45

Tickets for the Berkshire Flyer start at $45 for economy options and "will not exceed $105 one way," according to Amtrak. You may purchase them online at the official Amtrak website, through the app, at Amtrak desks and kiosks at Penn, or by visiting them in person. The railroad business promotes the train route as a more affordable option than taking a car to the Berkshires, which they claim would cost more than $100 for each trip.
