The start date is set for the long-awaited return of passenger rail service to Burlington . After 15 years of work on the Amtrak project, the Ethan Allen Express will start service in Burlington on July 29 at 10:10 a.m. It will take about 7.5 hours to go from Burlington to Manhattan, and you will arrive by 5:45 p.m. A one-way ticket costs $75. This is a regional train, meaning it doesn’t stop at all the small stations along the way, but rather it is designed to hit the hubs of Vergennes, Middlebury, Rutland and Castleton before jogging over to New York and hitting several stops there, such as Albany. The Ethan Allen Express has run between Rutland and New York City since the mid-1990s. Amtrak’s Vermont runs from New York, through Connecticut and Massachusetts following the Connecticut River before it crosses Vermont to reach St. Albans.
