The Berkshire Flyer

The Berkshire Flyer is Amtrak’s new seasonal passenger rail service between New York City and the Berkshires.

Beginning on July 8, 2022, The Berkshire Flyer will provide rail service from New York City to Pittsfield, MA each weekend through Labor Day weekend.

The train departs from New York Penn Station at 3:16 pm on Fridays, and arrives at Joseph Scelsi Intermodal Transportation Center in Pittsfield at 7:12 pm. Departure from Pittsfield is at 3:00 pm on Sunday and arrival in New York City is 7:05 pm.

After you arrive in the Berkshires on Friday, you will need a way to get from the train station to where you are staying. As the county is made up of 30 towns and 2 cities we highly recommend you make advance plans to travel from the train station to your final destination and make similar plans to return to the station on Sunday. 1Berkshire has listed a variety of transportation options at the link below. Hopefully one will be the perfect fit for you and your Berkshire vacation!
