  • Secretary Foxx announces $25 million federal grant for uptown Amtrak station

    Charlotte plans to move the Amtrak train station on North Tryon Street to a new location uptown in three or four years, a move helped by a $25 million federal grant that U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced Thursday. Eventually, the city hopes to convert that site into Gateway Station, a home to Amtrak, a commuter rail line to Lake Norman, inter-city and transit buses and the streetcar. The station would be distinctive architecturally, and boosters have said it would serve as a Grand Central Station for the city.
