Union Station Improvements

Project History

Union Station is one of Worcester’s most historic and architecturally significant buildings. Once referred to as a “Poem in Stone,” its iconic towers greet travelers from the East and welcome visitors to Worcester’s re-emerging Downtown. As the location of the region’s premier intermodal transportation center, Union Station boasts multiple options for travel including high speed rail, commuter rail, inter-and intra- city bus services, and taxi services as well as a parking garage with two electric vehicle charging stations. Currently Union Station tenants include: Amtrak, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and Peter Pan/Greyhound Bus Lines.

With the completion of the MBTA Yawkey Way Station in March 2014, commuter rail service at Union Station increased to 20 daily round trips between Worcester and Boston; and the commuter rail daily ridership is approximately 1,600 passengers. Future track improvements promise to help ease heat related speed restrictions and increase availability of express and nonstop service. Over $7 million in improvements have been made to or are planned for the facility through funding from the City of Worcester and the Federal Transit Administration.
