Ann Arbor is a train station in Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States that is served daily by Amtrak's (the national railroad passenger system) Wolverine, which runs three times daily between Chicago, Illinois and Pontiac, Michigan, via Detroit.

Description[edit]

The station is located at 325 Depot Street.[1] (Although it is in very close proximity to Broadway Street, there is no direct access to Depot Street from Broadway Street.) The station has a ticket office, is fully wheelchair accessible and has an enclosed waiting area. Other amenities include public restrooms, vending machines, paid parking, and a taxi stand. Baggage cannot be checked at this location; however, up to two suitcases in addition to any "personal items" such as briefcases, purses, laptop bags, and infant equipment are allowed on board as carry-ons.

The station replaced the Michigan Central Railroad depot. The present-day station neighbors the Michigan Central depot, which was renovated as the Gandy Dancer restaurant in 1969. The current station was built in 1983. The station is 1 mile from the Blake Transit Center.
