More than a train station, for over 100 years Tampa Union Station has been a landmark for generations of Tampa travelers and residents.
Located at 601 North Nebraska Avenue in Downtown Tampa at Ybor City’s western edge, Union Station was completed in 1912. Once vacant and boarded-up, Union Station is very much an active train station today.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, today Tampa Union Station serves more than 150,000 Amtrak passengers each year and is owned by the City of Tampa.
Friends of Tampa Union Station, a not-for-profit group of volunteers, is working to ensure that this historic landmark is preserved for current and future generations to use and enjoy.
