Daily passenger rail service in Georgia is served by four Amtrak routes, three of which serve coastal Georgia, the Palmetto, Silver Meteor, and Silver Star. The Palmetto operates between New York and Savannah, while the Silver Star and Silver Meteor operate between New York and Miami. Each of the three coastal trains stop in Savannah, and the Silver Star adds a stop in Jesup. North Georgia is served by Amtrak’s Crescent route, which travels between New Orleans and New York City with stops in Atlanta, Gainesville, and Toccoa.
In partnership with the Federal Railroad Administration and neighboring states, Georgia is exploring opportunities for high-speed rail along the federally-designated Southeast Corridor. More information about this multi-state effort can be found on the Southeast Corridor project website: https://www.ncdot.gov/divisions/rail/projects/southeast-corridor/Pages/default.aspx.
