Amtrak Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Text Size
Join us for the grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony for the Holyoke Passenger Rail Platform at Depot Square at 12:30PM on Thursday, August 27 at the intersection of Dwight and Main streets!
More details will follow in the coming days, but until then, please help us spread the word and make sure you save the date!
The restoration of passenger rail service in Holyoke is possible due to the realignment of the Knowledge Corridor Rail Line, which will shorten the distance and improve speeds along Amtrak’s Vermonter service line. The platform has been built at the bottom of Dwight Street, near the intersection with Main Street in Center City Holyoke, on the west side of the track. Although extended rail service has been available since December at temporary platforms in Greenfield and Northampton, this will be the beginning of available rail service in Holyoke, the first permanent station completed along the new extended Vermonter line.
