The Amtrak Downeaster will increase service and implement a new schedule on May 3, restoring five daily round trips between Brunswick and Boston.

The Downeaster has been offering four daily round-trips since July 2020.

The expanded schedule will include a new southbound train which will depart Brunswick mid-morning each day, as well a new northbound train which will depart Boston mid-afternoon each day. Seasonal service will resume to Old Orchard Beach, and the last northbound train out of Boston each night will operate on a flexible schedule to better serve evening sports and events.
