Exit main doors, and then proceed down the escalator. If you take the train to the Main Terminal, see below.
  • From Terminals B & C – From the train: Once you have arrived up the escalator, proceed south (Terminal East will be to your left and Terminal West to your right). Exit main doors, and then proceed down the escalator.

Upon arrival at Union Station:

  • After exiting the light rail, turn right and proceed to the walkway on the right of Union Station
  • Take a left after the ‘No pedestrians allowed beyond this point’ sign. (The signage will tell you to take a right, which is a roundabout way.)
