Fayetteville is an Amtrak train station in Fayetteville, North Carolina, United States. It is located in the Fayetteville Downtown Historic District and next to the Airborne & Special Operations Museum.

History[edit]

The station was originally built in 1911 by the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, designed by architect Joseph F. Leitner,[2] and was the third station to be located at the corner of Hay and Hillsborough Streets. The station has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since July 7, 1982.[3] Between 2005 and 2006, the station was restored in an effort to bring it up to compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.[4]

Services[edit]

The station, operated by Amtrak, provides inter-city rail service via two routes: Palmetto and Silver Meteor. The facility is open daily at 10:00am-5:45pm and 10:00pm-5:45am, which includes the ticket office, passenger assistance, baggage service and the waiting area.[5] A Subway restaurant is also located in the facility.

Because of construction of a new baseball stadium, hotel and parking deck, parking for the station is temporarily located behind the Airborne & Special Operations Museum. When construction is completed, pay parking will only be available via the parking deck.[6]

Located one block south, along Winslow Street, is the FAST Center, providing local and intercity bus services.[7]
