    Union Station, with its elegant architecture, 50-foot-tall clock tower and cheerful “Go By Train” neon sign, is a Portland landmark.

    The station is located at the foot of the Broadway Bridge in Old Town Chinatown, just minutes from the center of downtown.  The Portland Transit Mall, which carries many bus lines, as well as the MAX light rail Green and Yellow lines, is one block from Union Station.

    Union Station is served by three Amtrak passenger trains:

    • With three daily departures between Seattle and Portland, as well as daily service to Vancouver, B.C., and Eugene, Ore., Amtrak Cascades is a convenient link to the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia.
    • The Coast Starlight operates daily, connecting the West Coast’s most popular destination cities, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle.
    • Running daily, the Empire Builder begins in Portland and heads east to Chicago with stops at Whitefish, Glacier National Park, Minot, Minneapolis, Milwaukee and other locations.
