Union Depot in downtown St. Paul is about to get a bit more traffic. Megabus, which famoulsy offers fares beginning at $1 to Chicago, Madison and Milwaukee, will relocate its St. Paul arrival and departures to the depot, at 214 4th St. E., effective Jan. 29. The buses had been using the parking lot of the Midway Shopping Center.
The 1920s Union Depot has been restored and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Soon, it will also host Amtrak train passengers.
“We are pleased to offer a more convenient, sheltered location in St. Paul for customers departing/arriving to the area,” said Mike Alvich, megabus.com’s Vice President of Marketing & Public Relations. “Union Depot is a beautiful facility where customers can safely relax prior to boarding.”
The terminal building offers free Wi-fi, power outlets, comfortable seating, a Greek restaunt and 24-hour security.
