National News

(WFXR) — Amtrak continues to announce changes to its travel plans ahead of Wednesday’s Inauguration Day.

Earlier this weekend, Amtrak said it was canceling service on Tuesday, Jan. 19 and Wednesday, Jan. 20 to and from numerous stations in Virginia, south of Washington, D.C.

Workers say all customers who have been impacted by the service cancellations Tuesday and Wednesday have been notified to have their travel plans adjusted.

Now, Amtrak says they are taking extra steps to make sure customers and employees are safe by deploying additional police officers onboard trains and stations and will utilize additional support from the Transportation Security Administration.
