Essex Junction, also known as Essex Junction-Burlington, is an Amtrak train station in the village of Essex Junction, Vermont, United States. The station was originally built by the Central Vermont Railway in 1958. It serves Amtrak's Vermonter train, which runs from St. Albans, near the Canada–U.S. border and Washington, D.C. to the south. Prior to bridge trouble at Alburg north of St. Albans, train service continued to Montreal. Until the early 1960s, the Boston and Maine railroad operated Montreal to Boston service on The Ambassador through the station.
The station is the closest station to Vermont's most populous municipality, Burlington, that is currently served by Amtrak, as Burlington Union Station has not served passenger trains since 1953. Burlington is about a 25-minute bus ride away from the station on Green Mountain Transit (GMT), the local bus system.
