WHAT IS THE REGULAR SERVICE (TRAIN ONLY)?
It is a service which transports only by train to Machu Picchu Pueblo. To do this, the passenger must arrive on his own at the station from where the train will depart. This is the most common service for those people who want to get to know the Inca Citadel, as it operates 365 days a year.
WHAT IS THE BIMODAL SERVICE (BUS+TRAIN)?
Besides from our Regular Service, throughout 2022 Expedition PeruRail operates the Bimodal Service (Bus+Train), a service that combines bus and train travel, departing and returning to Cusco City. During this period, passengers using the PeruRail Vistadome bimodal service, board a private bus at Wanchaq Station, 5 minutes away from Cusco’s historic center, and arrive at Ollantaytambo Station. From here, passengers board the train and head to their final destination: Machu Picchu Station. The return journey is the same in reverse.
