Umeå Östra Travel Centre, with its characteristic architecture, is strategically located directly adjacent to the university hospital and the university area.

Connecting two neighbourhoods

With the motivation “Umeå Östra travel centre beautifully connects two city districts and is a generously designed public space that welcomes people”, the travel centre was awarded the Swedish Transport Administration’s Architecture Prize 2013. Umeå Östra has also received an honourable mention in the international railway and architecture-oriented design and architecture competition, the Brunel Awards.

The building is glazed on two floors, with a shell construction of glulam inside the glass. The choice of materials and sophisticated lighting create an attractive meeting place. The non-reflective glass allows visitors to see the trains no matter where they are in the building.

Café Östra Station External link.is located on the upper floor of the building.

Umeå Östra was opened in 2010 and is one of several travel centres built in connection with the Bothnia Line. INAB owns the station property and is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the travel centre. The Swedish Transport Administration is responsible for maintaining the tracks and platforms.
