Amtrak moves back to Union Station on Feb. 28
After being temporarily relocated during construction at Denver Union Station, Amtrak moved back to Union Station at 1701 Wynkoop St. on February 28, 2014.
Renovation inside the historic Union Station building is not yet finished, so Amtrak passengers will access the waiting room, ticketing and baggage office by following signs to the trackside of the building at the south end (the south wing portion of the historic building). From there, passengers will follow signs to the newly constructed passenger platform, under the large white canopy, where they will load and unload. Access to the new Amtrak facility will be from the front of the building when construction is completed in July.
Although there will be no passenger parking at the new location, there are numerous long and short- term parking lots and garages around Union Station. For more information on parking downtown, visit http://www.downtowndenver.com
The stop for Amtrak Thruway buses will be temporarily located on Wynkoop Street, across from Union Station and marked with signage.
For more information, Amtrak customers locally can call (303) 825-2583 or the toll-free Amtrak contact centers at (800) USA-RAIL.
For ticketing information call 800-872-7245 (USA-RAIL)
Historic Union Station
to open in July 2014
On December 3, 2012, construction began on Denver's historic Union Station, turning the landmark into a bustling mixed-use, transit-oriented hub with a planned opening in July 2014. Once open, the building will be active 24/7, 365 days a year. The public area will be open to the community and travelers alike.
The building will feature The Crawford Hotel, a 112-room independent hotel on the upper levels to be managed by Denver's Sage Hospitality, named after Union Station Alliance partner, Dana Crawford.
Denver's Larimer Associates is handling the retail leasing at Union Station and will feature more than 22,000 square feet of ground floor space divided into approximately 10 independent retail and restaurant outlets, complemented by a 12,000 square foot public common area, the "Great Hall",and 40,000 square feet of outdoor plaza space. Restaurant and retail will be a custom-crafted collection of locally owned businesses.
Three lead restaurants for
Denver's Union Station have
- Fruition Restaurant
- The Kitchen Next Door
- Snooze, an A.M. Eatery
The project construction is being led by Colorado's Milender White Construction Company.

NOTICE OF FRAUDULENT CHECK SCAM:
It has come to the attention of Denver Union Station Project Authority (DUSPA) of a scam involving fake checks being sent out by mail under a name very similar to DUSPA. The fake checks are issued under the name of Denver Union Station Public Authority drawn on Zions Bank and are always in the amount of $3,488.00. These checks are fraudulent and of no value as the name, signor and account number are invalid. In some cases the arrival of the check is preceded by an email with instructions to deposit the check, retain some funds and then transfer the balance of the funds by Western Union. If you receive one of the above described checks, please do not attempt to cash it or send any portion of the funds to someone else. If you do, the deposit will ultimately be reversed and any funds transferred will be lost. DUSPA IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSSES.
This matter is currently under investigation.
If possible, please send copies of any checks, envelopes and email correspondence received in connection with this scam to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have additional questions or concerns please contact Rob Andrews at 303-628-1718.
