ABA members monitor Northeast Corridor travel situation, offer assistance following Amtrak derailment (May 13, 2015)
Following a major Amtrak train derailment in Philadelphia Tuesday night, the American Bus Association is reaching out to its motorcoach members that operate daily scheduled service in the Northeast Corridor between New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
Several ABA-member companies say they are considering adding additional buses based on expected demand and the amount of time it could take to remove the damaged train and repair the tracks in Philadelphia.
ABA has been in touch with Amtrak. The railroad says it will let ABA know its needs as soon as possible to assist passengers who have been impacted by this accident.
Transportation safety is the highest priority of ABA and its members. We offer our condolences to the passengers who were injured and to the families of the people who died in this accident.
