Transit Briefs: Amtrak, LA Metro

Amtrak’s contracted Penn Station Partners have released renderings of the planned expansion of Baltimore Penn Station. Also, LA Metro selects Anser Advisory to oversee the development of the Sepulveda Transit Corridor (STC).

Baltimore Penn Station’s (pictured) last major renovation was completed in 1984 as part of the Northeast Corridor Improvement Project. Pre-pandemic, more than 3 million Amtrak and MARC riders moved through the facility each year. Its redevelopment will better accommodate ridership growth and improve the customer experience, according to Amtrak.
