Today, Bologna Central Station is the fifth-largest passengers traffic in Italy (about 58,000,000 passengers per year). It is, however, one of the first for traffic volume, being tied with Rome Termini Station for train traffic (about 800 trains/day) because it is the principal railway junction of Italy.

A new three-level railway station for high-speed trains, 642 metres long and 56 metres wide, is being built under the current station to a design by Arata Isozaki, with parking at 7 metres below the surface, a shopping arcade at 15 m below and four high-speed train platforms at 23 m below. In July 2008 Arata Isozaki & Associates, Ove Arup & Partners and M + T & Partners won a competition to design the station. It is expected to be completed in 2014 at a cost of €340 million.
