Amtrak, Md. MTA install new LED info board

Posted on March 16, 2011

Amtrak and the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) partnered with other Washington Union Station stakeholders to install a new LED train information board in the Main Hall of Washington Union Station.

The board is now in operation and marks the culmination of a two-year, $1.9 million project to upgrade signage throughout the station. The project was funded by the Amtrak/MARC Joint Benefits Capital Program.

Passengers entering Union Station can once again obtain train departure and arrival information from the Main Hall of the station. The train information board and nearly 60 new electronic signs were installed throughout the station. The new signs were also carefully developed to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements and demonstrate a continuing effort towards improved customer service.

Additional funding for the installation of the train information board was provided by the Union Station Redevelopment Corp.
