DENVER — Amtrak has temporarily relocated from the historic Denver Union Station to 1800 21st St., at the intersection of 21st St. and Wewatta St., near Coors Field in Downtown Denver’s Prospect Neighborhood.
The temporary station is completely accessible to passengers with disabilities, offers Quik-Trak self-serve ticketing kiosks, free Wi-Fi and vending machines with snacks and beverages.
Amtrak passengers are encouraged to plan to be picked up and dropped off at the temporary location. Approximately 15 short-term parking spaces are available at the lot on the east side of the station for passenger pick-up and drop-off. The temporary station is served by a RTD bus stop just steps from the door.
The move is necessary to accommodate construction of the new commuter rail station at Denver Union Station that will serve Amtrak and the East, Gold, North Metro and Northwest Rail commuter rail lines. When improvements are complete, Denver Union Station will be the centerpiece of the Regional Transportation District’s FasTracks transit expansion program and will serve as a multimodal hub for the region. Amtrak will return to Union Station in the spring of 2014.
