Hertz® Will Host Grand Opening at Union Depot With November 15 Ribbon Cutting and Public Celebration

November 8, 2016

The Hertz location at Union Depot will celebrate its Grand Opening at a public celebration with refreshments and a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, November 15.  The ribbon cutting will take place at 3 p.m. at the rental counter, located in the entrance at 240 Kellogg Boulevard East, next to the Amtrak® ticketing and baggage area. Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority Commissioner Rafael Ortega will officially cut the ribbon.  Hertz recently signed a two-year lease agreement at Union Depot and opened for business on November 1, just in time to meet holiday travelers’ needs. The rental car office operates Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. Customers will have a wide array of vehicle options to suit every need and taste, from sporty convertibles and eco-friendly, fuel-efficient models to classic sedans, SUVs and minivans for family travel.


The Hertz service will round out Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority’s multimodal vision for Union Depot as a full-service transit/transportation station and will complement its existing transit and transportation options. “Hertz’s newest location at Union Depot is an important connection for people arriving in St. Paul,” said Commissioner Ortega. “Opening just in time for the busy holiday season, the car rental option offers flexibility to travelers who cannot reach their final destination by transit.”


“We are proud to open our doors at Union Depot,” says Hertz General Manager Jeremie Torok. “We look forward to offering our car rental services to St. Paul visitors and local residents. Existing and new Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members can earn points toward free rental days, and enjoy additional benefits and features on our Hertz app.”


Hertz rental cars will be easily available in the Lot B drop off area, accessible from Kellogg Boulevard and Broadway, with six stalls available and no fees for parking, allowing for convenient pick up and returns.  Rental car customers will be able to rent or drop off cars for round trip or one-way travel.


Hertz will also offer vacation deals to travelers as well as 50 Amtrak Guest Rewards points per day on qualifying Hertz rentals.
