The Rochester train station will be renamed after Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced Wednesday morning.

The Rochester Intermodal Station will now be called the "Louise M. Slaughter Intermodal Station in Rochester."

Last week, both senators and Governor Andrew Cuomo called for Amtrak to rename the station after the congresswoman.

“One of Louise’s most significant accomplishments was delivering the federal funding that made the Rochester Train Station a reality," said Senator Schumer in a statement. "Louise fought for years fighting to secure over $15 million in federal funding, so it was only logical and necessary for Amtrak to rename the train station after Louise, a legend in her own right and a fierce advocate for her constituents."

“It’s wonderful news that Amtrak is renaming the Rochester train station after my dear friend and colleague Louise Slaughter,” said Senator Gillibrand in a statement. “Louise was one of the most effective members of Congress I’ve ever worked with, and bringing this station to Rochester was one of her proudest accomplishments. Now, whenever anyone rides the train across New York, Louise Slaughter and Rochester will be inseparable. That’s a fitting, meaningful tribute to one of the great public servants of our time, and I was very proud to support the effort to change this station’s name.”

Rep. Slaughter died last Friday at the age of 88.
