Passenger Rail

The restoration of passenger rail service in Holyoke is possible due to the realignment of the Knowledge Corridor Rail Line, which will shorten the distance and improve speeds along Amtrak’s Vermonter service line.  A train stop will be built at the bottom of Dwight street, near the intersection with Main street in Center City Holyoke, on the west side of the track. This site is located approximately one-tenth of a mile to the south of the former Station location, three-tenths of a mile from City Hall and just north  to of the Holyoke’s first freight rail station site.

Significant local and regional economic and mobility benefits will be achieved from this project, connecting Holyoke to nearby Cities of Greenfield, Northampton, Springfield, Hartford and beyond.  Work began on the construction of the passenger rail platform in December of 2014, and the ribbon cutting was held on August 27, 2015.
