Terminus Northeast Regional

The Newport News Amtrak station is located at 9304 Warwick Boulevard in Newport News, Virginia. It serves as a terminus of the Northeast Regional service which begins in Boston. Amtrak Thruway Motorcoach service is available for those who wish to continue their journeys to either Norfolk or Virginia Beach.

The current facility is planned to be replaced with two new stations—a large intermodal station near the Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport and a smaller station in downtown Newport News.[2] The city plans to begin design work for the larger station in the summer of 2011, for an opening sometime before 2016.[2] The cost is estimated at $24 million, though the city has only obtained $2 million.[2]
