Amtrak values your sleep, too.

The railroad passenger service announced Monday that it’s moving the weekday departure time for the train from Norfolk to Washington.

As of Aug. 31, the new departure time will be 6:10 a.m. The current time is – yawn – 5 a.m.

In a prepared statement Monday, Amtrak wrote that the time change was due to “customer response.”

Norfolk Mayor Paul Fraim weighed in on the change with a prepared statement of his own.
