Published on : Thursday, February 14, 2013

Today, Amtrak joined the City of Winter Park, Florida Department of Transportation, Federal Transit Administration and community leaders for a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Winter Park Train Station.  The new 2,400 square-foot building will feature craftsman-style architecture and include ADA-compliant restrooms and a lobby to greet and welcome train visitors to Winter Park.  The statement below is from Amtrak:

“The Winter Park Station is an important part of the Amtrak national network.  The Silver Meteor and Silver Star both serve this station, and will continue to do so during construction, providing convenient access south to Miami and north to New York.  Since fiscal year 2002, this station has seen a 40 percent increase in passenger ons and offs with more than 33,400 last year. The new station will provide a long-term viable solution for continued growth in ridership and bring many benefits to the community including economic development and tourism growth.

“We applaud the City of Winter Park, Florida Department of Transportation and everyone in the community for their efforts to coordinate this new station and encourage passenger rail growth.”
