MONTGOMERY, W.Va. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today rode aboard Amtrak’s Cardinal train from Charleston to Montgomery for the ribbon cutting of the newly remodeled Montgomery Amtrak station.

“I’m so impressed with the newly remodeled Montgomery Amtrak station. Now all riders—including riders with disabilities—are better able to use and enjoy this facility,” Senator Capito said. “The new station complements the economic growth and development we’re seeing that is revitalizing Montgomery. The ride from Charleston to Montgomery—that I had the chance to experience today—really showcases the wild and wonderful beauty of our state, and I know when visitors ride through, they’ll want to stop and stay. Amtrak’s route through our state is important not only for day-to-day ease of travel, but it also helps connect West Virginia to more metropolitan areas like Chicago and New York.”
