Baltimore Penn Station is a major multimodal transportation hub serv­ing the greater Baltimore region and is a vital link along the busy Northeast Corridor.

With its classic Beaux-Arts architecture, the his­toric station was built in 1911 and anchors the Charles North Dis­trict in Baltimore City. As the 8th busiest station in Amtrak’s national system, Penn Station serves Amtrak’s high speed Acela, Northeast Regional and long-distance train services. In addition, the commuter operations of MARC’s Penn Line, the city’s light rail and bus service can all be accessed via the station.

As a vital transportation gateway and treasured community asset, Amtrak is committed to the continuous improvement of Baltimore - Penn Station. In 2017, Amtrak selected Penn Station Partners, a Baltimore based team with global expertise, as its master development partner for the redevelopment of Baltimore Penn Station and neighboring Amtrak-owned properties. The team is comprised of Beatty Development Group, Cross Street Partners, Gensler, WSP USA, Network Rail Consulting and Mace Group among others. The goal of this Master Development is to generate additional investment capital for station infrastructure needs, as well as serve as an economic catalyst for the city.
