About Union Station

This $82 million project will integrate multiple transit modes in one convenient, functional and attractive mixed-used complex that includes not only a regionally significant transportation facility but also third-party tenants.

Now under preliminary construction, Union Station will include:

  • The complete renovation of the terminal building and its central concourse to support ticketing, waiting and support areas for Amtrak, intercity and state-supported regional rail service as well as regional PVTA and intercity bus operations.
  • The renovation and reactivation of the Amtrak passenger tunnel linking the terminal building to train platforms and the adjacent downtown area.
  • Demolition of the former baggage handling building and construction of a 26-bay integrated open-air regional and intercity bus terminal and a six -level 377-space on-site parking garage.
  • Opening up of 64,000 square feet of leasable commercial space on the upper floors of the Terminal Building.

The project is scheduled for completion by fall 2016.
