Many people write the negative of things, ok thats fine, but for Providence being a small progressive city the station is one of the best, every body is entiled to their oppinions, but I still think is a good idea travel, from Washington DC. to Boston South Station Sopping in Penssylvania,new york penn station, new haven conneticut, providence and finnaly...

a small station but well placed on the edge of the city.trains go everywhere on the East Coast and meet up in Penn Station for other regions of the country. Clean with a gift shop and a small cafe type for sandwiches and drinks. Easy to get to the trains which arrive and leave downstairs of the station.

The Boston MBTA had a free day on all forms of transport so we took a tip to Providence for the day. We arrived at the station and found it clean, efficient and delightfully near points of interest. We are seniors with some mobility issues but the distances for us were fine. Out one door is an amazing view of... More

As far as Train Stations for capital city's go, this one is small and without an appropriate amount of seating during rush hour. The escalators are broken and have not been maintained in at least two years leading to a terrible logjam when passengers are disembarking while others are trying to get down the stairs to an arriving train. It's... More

Not sure if it is always wall to wall people or if I just got 'lucky" but my visit here to catch the Acela was most memorable for the lack of space for people, bags or anywhere to sit. Even with people rather quiet it was near impossible to hear the train announcements. Seemed like a lovely station but too... More

I can't say anything negative about the train stration nor Amtrak it self, if you are in Boiston South station you can get to RI in just 3o minutes, trains run in the northeast corridor all the way to Washington DC. passing for Connecticut, Penn station in NY, Philadelphia, Maryland and Washington DC. I recommend Acela the fastest train in... More

We took the train to Boston it goes to Boston South Station. It was a strange experience because We had to buy train tickets at the Coffee counter and not in the big train Station hall. The MBTA tickets have to be bought with cash only, in the Coffee shop, so there is a long line in the morning. They... More

The station is located in downtown, behind Waterplace Park and in front of the state house. The tracks actually pass under Providence Place Mall. To clarify some points the original beautiful Union Station, built in 1898, was NOT torn down. It was preserved, renovated and is now corporate offices, restaurants and a Marriott Hotel. The current station is not old,... More

I have traveled the U.S. extensively by rail and this is one of the nicest of the train stations. The employees are helpful and friendly. The information board may be old-fashioned but it is easy to read. My only complaint is the lack of parking and the drop off zone is difficult and often blocked by maintenance vehicles. Food choices... More
