Document Description
The proposed project would demolition an existing industrial warehouse structure in order to develop a new train depot on the City-owned property adjacent to the existing Goleta Rail Station and Union Pacific right-of-way. The proposed new structure would provide a permanent, enclosed, and safe structure for Amtrak passengers to use as they wait to board or after they disembark from trains. The proposed Train Depot would be located in the northern portion of the project site adjacent to the railroad right-of-way. The proposed new Train Depot would include a lobby, vending machines, a café and kitchen area for riders to purchase beverages and food, restroom facilities, multiple indoor waiting areas, a meeting room, an on-site ticketing area, as well as adequate luggage and storage space. The project will also accommodate bicycle access and provide onsite bicycle storage options, as well as ample vehicle parking on an adjacent surface parking lot. A proposed “Kiss N’ Ride” space in front of the building would allow for designated pick-up and drop-off locations for passengers
