Studies & Reports
Bedford Regional Passenger Rail
Since October 2017, Amtrak has operated daily state-sponsored round-trip service originating in Roanoke. This service travels north through the Commonwealth on Norfolk Southern Railway (NSR) trackage with stops in Lynchburg, Charlottesville, Culpeper, Manassas, Burke Center, and Alexandria before proceeding to Washington, D.C., and cities in the Northeast Corridor. Due to the success of the service both in Lynchburg and Roanoke, community leaders in the Bedford/Franklin County region have advocated for an Amtrak passenger rail stop in the Town of Bedford, which is located along the route.
