- Transportation Center
Welcome to the City of Williamsburg's Transportation Center located in downtown Williamsburg, one block north of the corner of North Boundary and Lafayette Streets.
About the Transportation Center
The Williamsburg Transportation Center is located at 468 North Boundary Street directly behind the Municipal Building and the Fire Station. The station is a fine brick building with a covered platform abutting the CSX rail system main track. The Center is located four blocks from Colonial Williamsburg. The 5,400 square foot station was built in 1935 on 1.6 acres of land as part of the Rockefeller restoration of the Historic Area.
In 2000, the City of Williamsburg purchased the station from Colonial Williamsburg. The architectural group of Guernsey Tingle was hired by the City to renovate and restore the building. The goal was to increase the function and usefulness of the center, while still maintaining its' 1935 character and charm.
The Center includes an Amtrak office, waiting rooms, public restrooms, and a vending area where visitors can grab a quick snack and also pick up visitor information guides.
West Side, East Side
The Williamsburg Transportation Center is a full-service transportation center featuring Amtrak service, local cab service, and local bus service. The Center provides a lot for long-term parking to the west of the building for passengers that wish to drive themselves to the Center. The use of the long-term parking lot requires a vehicle "hang tag," that can be obtained from the on-site Amtrak representative.
