History[edit]

The station was first built in 1864 and between 1865 and 1906 5 more platforms were added. In the first half of the 20th century it was further enlarged and renewed and in 1946, after World War II, the most recent renovation project was started.

Bari Centrale lies in the middle of the city, at Aldo Moro square (Piazza Aldo Moro). It is a large junction station with 16 platforms for passenger service (13 for FS trains, 3 for FSE).

The station is situated on the lines Ancona-Pescara-Bari-Lecce (FS), Bari-Taranto (FS), Bari-Martina Franca-Taranto (FSE).

The station is divided into 3 areas. The main station is used by Trenitalia and FSE and features 16 platforms. On the west side of Piazza Aldo Moro are the entrances to the Ferrotramviaria and Ferrovie Appulo Lucane stations, with 3 and 2 platforms respectively.

The Centrale is an important transportation hub for the Apulia regional services. For long-distance transport it is served by EuroStar (Frecciargento and Frecciabianca), InterCity and Express trains to Rome, Milan, Bologna, Turin and Venice.
