Bryan City Council met on Monday, and according to the Bryan Times, city officials expressed hope that someone might develop the Amtrak station at Paige and Lynn streets. In fact, the newspaper reports that Bryan Mayor Doug Johnson spoke with Amtrak officials about the station just last week.
In the past, Amtrak had indicated a desire to build a new station, but it lacks the money necessary to pull it off after having to make all their stations ADA compliant.
According to Amtrak, a new building would cost around $1 million. City Council disagreed, saying a more modest station could be built for about $200,000 or less.
