Amtrak Empire Builder returns to Union Depot

Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

The Amtrak Empire Builder is returning to the historic, renovated Union Depot in downtown St. Paul on the evening of May 7.

The Empire Builder runs north from Chicago to St. Paul, then cuts across the North Dakota plains and Montana's Big Sky country before stopping in Spokane, Wash. From there, riders can continue on to Seattle or down to Portland, Ore.

EMPIRE BUILDER SCHEDULE

Beginning May 7, the westbound Amtrak schedule will show the Empire Builder arriving at Union Depot at 10:03 p.m. and departing at 10:10 p.m.

Beginning May 8, the eastbound Empire Builder is scheduled to arrive at 7:52 a.m. and depart at 8:00 a.m.

These times are slightly different than the old Transfer Road station schedule.

Empire Builder passengers and bus passengers receive priority parking in Lot B at Union Depot.
