Norfolk holds grand opening for passenger rail station
Norfolk held a grand opening Monday for its new, 3,500 square foot passenger rail station.
The facility near Harbor Park is the first passenger rail station in the city since 1977.
“With modern, comfortable amenities, the new passenger rail station will greatly improve the passenger experience while serving as an identifiable landmark for those arriving to and departing from Norfolk,” Mayor Paul D. Fraim said in a statement..
The station includes a waiting area, ticket counter and restrooms.
Intercity passenger service resumed in Norfolk a year ago as part of a multiyear partnership involving the Commonwealth of Virginia, Amtrak, CSX, Norfolk Southern and the city.
