The Walter Rand Transportation Center is a transportation hub located at Martin Luther King Boulevard and Broadway in Camden, New Jersey. It is served by the River Line, the Broadway station of the PATCO Speedline, New Jersey Transit buses and Greyhound intercity buses.
The transit center opened on May 17, 1989 as Camden Transportation Center and was renamed in 1994 for Walter Rand, a former New Jersey State Senator, who specialized in transportation issues while serving in both houses of the New Jersey Legislature. It was built above the existing PATCO Broadway Station, which opened as one of the four original stations on the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Bridge Line on June 7, 1936, and had a connection to the Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines. The station was later acquired by PATCO.
Southbound service from the station via the River Line travels to the Camden Waterfront. Northbound service is available to the Trenton Transit Center with connections to New Jersey Transit trains to New York City, SEPTA trains to Philadelphia, and Amtrak trains.
