    • No, Union Station is not being torn down. A major goal of the master plan is to preserve the building as we all know it while also modernizing it and expanding the station’s ability to handle loads of passengers.

  2. It would be wonderful if a 3 or 4 star hotel would be part of the plan. I layover in LA often and the hotels within walking distance are poor. A hotel that is part of Amtrak Guest Rewards network would be a bonus.
