Sherrod Brown seeks relocation of Amtrak service

The Morning Journal

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown is asking Amtrak and Norfolk Southern Corporation to relocate Amtrak service to the Lorain County Transportation and Community Center.

“Moving Amtrak service to the Lorain County Transit Center would be a tremendous step forward in our efforts to revitalize downtown Elyria and provide a common sense solution to the problems posed by the current station which has no amenities and very little space,” Brown wrote in the letter to Amtrak’s president Joe Boardman.

Brown told Boardman he believes that Amtrak should make use of the recent $5 million renovation of the transportation center, rather than spending to upgrade its current Elyria stop.

“It is my hope that Amtrak will expedite planning, engineering and logistical meetings both with local officials and Norfolk Southern to make this new station a reality.”
