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, and added to the National Register of Historic Places in the year 2002.
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.
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.
