Michigan City is a train station in Michigan City, Indiana served by Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system. Wolverine makes stops here three times—once on its way to Chicago and twice on the way to Pontiac. The current station is a platform shelter near the former prairie-style Michigan Central Railroad depot dating from 1915, which is now a local restaurant.[2] It is fairly close to the city's administrative office and the Lake Michigan shoreline. Parking is available east of the station.

Service began at Michigan City on April 26, 1981.[3]:203 The electric interurban South Shore Line, which operates between South Bend and Chicago, stops at 11th Street Station roughly a mile to the south.
