William H. Gray III 30th Street Station

As part of Plenary Infrastructure Partners, Vantage is creating and delivering a new concession program at Philadelphia’s historic Gray 30th Street Station, Amtrak’s third busiest rail station in the United States.

The 100-year old station is undergoing a comprehensive revitalization to restore and maintain this important rail hub. This program marks Vantage’s first foray into concession operations at a rail station.
