Amtrak Station Closes While Rapid Limits Access to Station
If you were thinking of taking the train, well think again now that Amtrak has been closed and there is limited access to the bus station.
According to WOOD, in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19, the Vernon J Ehlers Amtrak station has been closed.
If you are a Rapid rider, you will still be able to purchase a Wave card and get reloads at the Rapid Central Station on Grandville Avenue SW. The only entrance that is open is the one located on the southeast side.
There is a process you will need to follow if you are a Greyhound customer. You will approach the southeast entrance, then wait to be escorted into the building by either a Greyhound worker or a security guard. You will also be able to buy a ticket directly from the Greyhound driver.
