The Charlotte Amtrak Station in Charlotte, North Carolina is served by three passenger trains. The street address is 1914 North Tryon Street, about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) to the northeast of downtown Charlotte.
The current station was built in 1961 by Southern Railway as a replacement for the former Southern Railway passenger station located near the intersection of Trade Street and 4th Street in downtown. (The former downtown station was torn down in 1962 as Southern Railway's passenger services were being eliminated). Southern Railway used the 1961 station as a stop for its passenger trains until 1979, when Amtrak was given control of the operation of the Crescent. The old Seaboard Air Line station, located on the current CSX Charlotte-Wilmington mainline, is just off Tryon Street a couple of blocks south of the Amtrak station. It is currently being used as a homeless shelter known as the Urban Ministry Center.
Of the 16 North Carolina stations served by Amtrak, Charlotte was the second-busiest in FY2010, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 450 passengers daily.
