About Springfield Union Station

This $84.5 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, Springfield 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.

Springfield Union Station History

Springfield Union Station was building in 1926 as part of a series of civic buildings and spaces which help define central Springfield. The complex stands as a successor to three earlier stations on or near this spot on the north edge of downtown. From 1926 until after World War II, rail travel thrived and Springfield Union Station was the heart of a bustling district that included the North Blocks of downtown and the adjacent North End.

Springfield Union Station closed in the 1970's, a witness to the post-war ascendancy of the suburbs and the decline in intercity rail. In the decades since, the Main Street core south of the station has seen concerted public and private reinvestment, through new construction and extensive reuse of historic structures, as city leadership embraced a movement to reclaim the distinguished character of Springfield and preserve its heritage.
