Amtrak adds bus service between Richmond, Charlottesville

Amtrak and James River Transportation recently launched a new Thruway bus service that connects passengers traveling to or from Richmond, Va., to two long-distance trains at Charlottesville, Va.

From Charlottesville, Amtrak's Crescent train will continue south to Atlanta and New Orleans, while the Cardinal train will operate west to Cincinnati and Chicago. The Thruway bus connection serves the Staples Mill Road and Main Street stations in Richmond, and the Charlottesville station, Amtrak officials said in a press release.

The buses feature Wi-fi service, while the Amtrak trains offer reserved coach or sleeping accommodations, and hot meals in the dining car.
