Pesaro railway station (Italian: Stazione di Pesaro) serves the city and comune of Pesaro, in the region of Marche, central Italy. Opened in 1861, it forms part of the Bologna–Ancona railway.

The station is currently managed by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI). However, the commercial area of the passenger building is managed by Centostazioni. Train services are operated by Trenitalia. Each of these companies is a subsidiary of Ferrovie dello Stato (FS), Italy's state-owned rail company.

Location[edit]

Pesaro railway station is situated at Piazzale Giovanni Falcone e Paolo Borsellino, southwest of the city centre.

History[edit]

The original passenger building.

The station was opened on 17 November 1861, upon the inauguration of the final section of the Bologna–Ancona railway, between Rimini and Ancona.[1]

The original operator of the station was the Società Generalle delle Strade Ferrate Romane (English: General Company for the Roman Railways). In the reorganization of the Italian railways in 1865, the Kingdom of Italy entrusted its operation to the Società per le Strade Ferrate Meridionali (SFM) (English: Company for the Southern Railways). The latter company retained that function until the nationalization of the Italian railways in 1905.

During its history, the station has suffered severe setbacks, although the city has been constantly developing.

In 1935, the original passenger building was replaced by the present structure, designed by the architect Roberto Narducci.

Features[edit]

The station yard has thirteen tracks, of which five are dedicated to passenger traffic.

The passenger tracks are served by three platforms accessible to users through a pedestrian underpass - lifts are available. The busiest passenger tracks are track 2, used by southbound trains, and track 3, which serves northbound trains. Tracks 1, 4 and 5 are used infrequently, generally for trains either originating or terminating in Pesaro.
