The Spokane Intermodal Center is an inter-modal transport facility that serves as a station, re-fueling, and service stop for the Amtrak "Empire Builder", as well as the Greyhound and Trailways station for Spokane, Washington, USA.

Spokane is unique in the operation of the "Empire Builder". At Spokane, the westbound train splits into two sections, with one heading to Seattle and the other to Portland. Of the cars of the westbound train, the last 4 Superliner cars (the Sightseer Lounge, two Coaches, and a Sleeper car) go to Portland. The eastbound train does the reverse operation, coming together in Spokane before heading east.

The station boarded or detrained an average of 120 passengers daily in FY07.

The station and parking are owned by the City of Spokane. The platform and track are owned by BNSF Railway.
