Roanoke Amtrak ridership encouraging for Bedford stop

    Having passed the six-month milestone since Amtrak ridership to and from the Roanoke Station began, state transportation officials are describing it as “impressive.” Ridership on the Washington, D.C. to Roanoke line increased by more than 8 percent year-over-year, largely due to the addition of the Roanoke Station. This occurred at a time when passenger rail ridership numbers are down slightly both nationwide and in Virginia.
