Battle Creek Station Grand Re-Opening
The city of Battle Creek has completed a $3.6 million renovation and remodeling of the Battle Creek Intermodal Transportation Center and will host a ribbon-cutting event on June 12, 2012, to celebrate the re-opening of the station. The event is open to the public and will be attended by local, state and Amtrak officials, and other invited guests.
Facility upgrades include a new entrance/passenger drop-off area, secure long-term parking lot, improved exterior lighting and landscaping as well as remodeled office space for tenants. The interior was completely remodeled and features free Wi-Fi and a passenger lobby with a vending area that includes café seating. The facility serves Amtrak and Greyhound passengers as well as Amtrak/Indian Trails connecting Thruway Motorcoach service between Battle Creek, East Lansing and Flint. Project funding was provided through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.
