Amtrak Reveals Preferred Concept for Station Plaza
Amtrak has completed the next phase of its planning work revealing the preferred concept for Station Plaza, a grand civic place surrounding all four sides of 30th Street Station. The refined concept incorporates community and customer feedback received at an open house during the summer and offers solutions to customer parking and drop-off locations, improves pedestrian flow around the station, enhances lighting for better security and visibility and provides safer walking and driving conditions.
A variety of high-resolution illustrations from the Preferred Concept Plan can be found on the Press Room page.
