Cary is a train station located in Cary, North Carolina. It is served by three Amtrak trains: the Silver Star, Carolinian, and Piedmont services. The address is 211 North Academy Street, located in the historic center of the town.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation erected a small station building in 1996, a year after Amtrak revived passenger service to Cary and approximately 20 years after the station that had served both the Southern Railway and the Seaboard Air Line was torn down. It was initially an infill station on the Piedmont, and was the last stop before its terminus in Raleigh, nine miles east. The Carolinian began serving the station in 1997, with the Silver Star following in 2005. In 2010-2011 NCDOT expanded the station with a larger waiting room, restrooms, and a staffed ticket sales window with checked baggage service.
The Cary station has about 130 free parking spaces, whereas the Raleigh station has paid parking. Passengers boarding trains at Cary, however, are subject to weather.[clarification needed]
