The Amtrak passengers waiting area at New York’s Penn Station will be part of a renovation project overhauling the shared NJ Transit facility. The improvements will constitute a $7.2 million project, completed in two phases. The first slated is expected to finish in March 2020 and the second in June 2020.
The project will include new furniture, fixtures, power and USB outlets, LED lighting and a family area with facilities for nursing mothers. The improvements will be made to Amtrak’s Ticketed Waiting Area, located on the train station’s upper level.
“Customers will now have the modern, state of the art, and comfortable facilities at Penn Station that they have deserved for so long,” said New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, citing cooperation between his state, the commuter railroad and Amtrak in bringing the project to fruition.
“These improvements will help reduce overcrowding in the NJ Transit waiting area, improve pedestrian flow through the station, and generally provide for a more comfortable environment,” added Kevin Corbett, president and CEO, NJ Transit.
Amtrak’s prior updates to the waiting area included a Starbucks, renovated restrooms and new furniture in the ClubAcela premium lounge.
