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.

A whole new way to ride:
Bus Concourse opens May 11
On Sunday, May 11, 2014, the new Union Station Bus Concourse will officially open in the heart of downtown Denver. This modern facility will serve as a multimodal transportation hub, offering bus, light rail, the Free MallRide, the new Free MetroRide, Amtrak, B-cycle, and future commuter rail.
The new spacious, 22-gate underground bus concourse will replace Market Street Station (which will permanently close), and provide easy connections to downtown and beyond. As part of the closure of Market Street Station, the following routes will be relocated to Union Station: 0, 15L, 31X, 32, 40X, 55X, 72X, 80X, 86X, 104X, 120X, AF, BV/BF/BX/BMX, L/LX/LNX/LSX, and S.
RTD will begin service on the Free MetroRide in May 2014. This high-frequency rush-hour bus will run along 18th and 19th Streets from Union Station to Civic Center Station, easing congestion on the 16th Street Mall and offering an additional way to navigate the downtown area.
