Amtrak service returns to Denver's historic Union Station


Amtrak returned ticketing and passenger services to Union Station in Denver last week, after temporarily relocating those services during construction at the station.

Amtrak relocated the services since 2011 to accommodate redevelopment work on the historic building, including a new commuter-rail station. Renovation work inside the building is still under way, so Amtrak riders will access the waiting room, ticketing and baggage office at the trackside of the building at its south end.

"We are looking forward to bringing the California Zephyr back to its historic home and for the entire project to be completed," said Jim Brzezinski, Amtrak route director for the train, in a press release.

Amtrak operates two trains daily through Denver: the westbound California Zephyr and the eastbound Zephyr. The California Zephyr runs daily between Chicago and the San Francisco Bay city of Emeryville, via Omaha, Neb., Denver, Salt Lake City and Reno, Nev.
