Jackson is an Amtrak station in Jackson, Michigan, United States. It is served by the Wolverine. The station was rebuilt by the Michigan Central Railroad in 1872, as a replacement for an earlier station built in 1841,[2] and added to the National Register of Historic Places in the year 2002.[3]

Station platform

There are currently plans to repair and modernize the station, including possibly converting into a true intermodal facility on the model of the Kalamazoo Transportation Center. The Michigan Department of Transportation has made a $300,000 grant for roof and brick repairs; city officials estimate that a full renovation/expansion would cost $10-13 million.[4]

Of the 22 Michigan stations served by Amtrak, Jackson was the 11th-busiest in FY2010, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 80 passengers daily.[1]
