Effective Until Further Notice

Construction has started on the $29.8 million Amtrak Rochester Intermodal Station in Rochester, NY, which will reduce regional delays by expanding track service at the station, increase functionality through a new and redesigned concourse and enhance the overall passenger experience in the larger, modern station. Construction is expected to be completed by 2017. This project will affect access to the station as follows:

  • Passengers should allow additional travel time to the station.
  • Parking has been reduced and the entrance and exit traffic patterns have changed.
  • Passengers are encouraged to be dropped off and picked up as it may be difficult to find a parking space.
  • Pay parking is also available at the Mortimer Parking garage, 72 North Clinton Avenue, $7.00/day. This garage is several blocks south of the Amtrak station. Passengers must make their own arrangements for transportation between the parking garage and the station.

Upon completion, the station will include two new dedicated passenger tracks. Presently, only one track adjoins the station and passenger and freight trains share it, often having to slow or wait outside of the station area until the track is clear. Having two additional tracks will reduce delays, allowing two passenger trains traveling in opposite directions to stop at the new station and freight trains to pass when passenger trains are stopped at the station.

It will have a two-sided, high-level passenger platform that will be accessed through a concourse from the station. It will greatly improve functionality, helping passengers to enter and exit trains more easily, reducing train delays. The project, including the new station, passenger concourse, platform and passenger information display systems, will be fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

We appreciate your patronage and apologize for any inconvenience, as we make improvements to our station. Reservations and the most up-to-date arrival and departure times are available on Amtrak.com, our free mobile apps and at 1-800-USA-RAIL (1-800-872-7245).
