Renovation of the historic Spokane station was completed in 1994 with funding from the city of Spokane, the state of Washington, the Federal Railroad Administration, Greyhound and Amtrak. The station serves as an intermodal facility for local transit services, Greyhound and Amtrak.

At Spokane, the westbound Empire Builder splits into two sections, with one heading to Seattle and the other to Portland. The eastbound sections from Portland and Seattle join in Spokane and head to Chicago.
