|Amtrak Palmetto route|
The Palmetto is an 829-mile (1334 km) passenger train service operated by Amtrak from New York City south to Savannah, Georgia via the Northeast Corridor to Washington, DC, then via Richmond, Virginia, Fayetteville, North Carolina and Charleston, South Carolina. The Palmetto is a shorter version of the Silver Meteor, which continues south to Miami, Florida.
From the late 90s to late 2002, the Palmetto was known as the Silver Palm (part of the Silver Service brand). Until November 1, 2004 the Palmetto continued south to Jacksonville, Florida with the Silver Meteor and Silver Star, but turned west at Jacksonville to Baldwin and then ran south via Ocala to Coleman on the old Seaboard Air Line Railroad main line. From Coleman it continued southwest to Lakeland, then west to Tampa, reversing direction to Auburndale and running south to Miami. With the truncation to Savannah, the Silver Star was rerouted to service Tampa; the old Jacksonville-Lakeland route is now served by a Thruway Motorcoach bus transfer from the Silver Star, which serves all the former stations as well as Gainesville.
