WE CAN HELP
While Amtrak has limited capital funds, the railroad can provide communities with engineering and design expertise, facilitate coordination with host railroads, and help municipalities navigate the complex issues related to accessibility, lease agreements, and other requirements associated with having an active intercity rail station.
In the sections below below, you can learn more and find links to other resources.
Should you be planning to begin any work on your station (engineering review, design, construction, or seeking funding) within the next few months, please contact us immediately. We are eager to share our experience, knowledge and contacts.
If you would like more information about Amtrak train routes, fares, schedules and directions to stations, please visit Amtrak.com, click the Amtrak logo located at the top and bottom of any page on this site, or call 1-800-USA-RAIL (1-800-872-7245).
