Flint is an Amtrak station in Flint, Michigan. It is served by the Blue Water. It doubles as the intercity bus station for Greyhound Lines and Indian Trails, and is served by a line of the local city bus service, the Flint Mass Transportation Authority, who owns the station. It is Flint's third station along the Grand Trunk Western Railroad line through the city. Flint's original GTW station was moved to Muskegon in 1927. The current station on Dort Highway provides easy access to I-69. It opened in 1989 to replace one that was closer to Downtown Flint.[2]

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.
