Background

Harrisburg Station, also known as the Harrisburg Transportation Center, is located at 4th and Chestnut streets in the City of Harrisburg, Dauphin County. It is a full-service station with ticket offices, an indoor waiting room, restrooms, and nearby long-term parking (transitpark.com). The 1887 three-story brick building was refurbished in 1986, with additional upgrades in 2007. The station is within walking distance of most downtown destinations, and passengers can easily transfer to local and intercity buses—the lower level is a terminal for Greyhound and Susquehanna Trailways, and Capital Area Transit serves the station at street level. The building also houses the Harrisburg Redevelopment Authority and other offices. Current improvements at Harrisburg are focused on the tracks, to allow faster speeds on the Keystone Corridor. PennDOT is also leading a study to consider transit-oriented development options near the station.
