Starting this fall, Amtrak shuttle buses will come to Greenville to connect eastern North Carolina with high-speed passenger rail service nationwide, the federal train operator announced Monday.
The newly dedicated motor coach line, dubbed “Thruway Service,” will establish two eastern North Carolina routes, one connecting Greenville, New Bern, Havelock and Morehead City, and the other Goldsboro, Kinston, Jacksonville and Wilmington.
Both routes will take passengers to an Amtrak station in Wilson that serves the Palmetto train, a twice-daily rail line that stops at 20 stations between New York and Savannah, Ga. It also provides access to the Amtrak national network of more than 500 stations in 46 states, the District of Columbia and three Canadian provinces.
