Pa. to help fund Pittsburgh-Harrisburg train

Posted: March 22, 2013

To preserve passenger rail service between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg, the Corbett administration said Thursday it will pay much of the cost of the once-a-day "Pennsylvanian" train.

The state will pay $3.8 million of the $6.5 million annual cost of the service, which is operated by Amtrak. Amtrak, which had been paying the full cost, will pay the rest.

The Pennsylvanian also has through service to and from Philadelphia and New York City.
