Next month, Amtrak will expand Acela Express weekend service between Boston and New York City.

An additional roundtrip on Sundays will be added to Acela Express starting April 8. Schedules also will be adjusted to add departures on Saturday mornings and Sunday evenings when customers have requested more service.

Amtrak is making the changes in response to customers' requests to provide more options on the Northeast Corridor (NEC), Amtrak officials said in a press release.

"Acela Express has long been the preferred premium choice for travelers between Washington, New York and Boston," said Mark Yachmetz, Amtrak vice president of NEC Business Development. "Our responsibility is to listen to our customers and continually improve our product to make sure Amtrak is always recognized as a smarter way to travel."
