Station Improvement:
Amtrak began serving the new Raleigh Union Station on July 10, 2018, relocating from the smaller Cabarrus Street station about two blocks to the southeast. Located on the western edge of downtown, Union Station is envisioned as the hub of a new mixed-use district that will include residential, retail and office units as well as space for cultural institutions.
