Amtrak Continuting to Make Upgrades to Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station

PHILADELPHIA – Amtrak will continue work this summer and fall on several upgrades at Philadelphia 30th Street Station to improve the passenger experience, tend to the long-term infrastructure needs of the nearly 100year-old building and improve pedestrian mobility in and around the facility.

The projects represent about a $35 million investment.

“30th Street Station is an iconic fixture in Philadelphia,” said Stephen Gardner, Amtrak vice president of Northeast Corridor infrastructure and investment development. “As stewards of this national historic landmark we are committed to maintaining its status as a first-class facility for passengers and further integrating the station into the vital University City neighborhood.”

Passengers should expect to see evidence of these construction projects in and around the main concourse and pedestrian areas of the station in the coming months. Some entrances to the building will be temporarily closed and services relocated throughout the construction period, with appropriate signage indicating alternate points of access. There will be no disruption or alteration to train service as a result of the construction.
