Flint is an inter-modal transportation center in Flint, Michigan. It is served by Amtrak's Blue Water route, and doubles as the intercity bus station for Amtrak Thruway Motorcoach, Greyhound Lines and Indian Trails, as well as the local city bus service, the Flint Mass Transportation Authority, who owns the station.
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.
This is at least the fourth station along the Grand Trunk Western Railroad (GTW) line through Flint. The railroad arrived from Port Huron in 1871 and originally a wooden structure served as the passenger station. A 1905 stone and brick station replaced it but was moved to Muskegon in 1927. The third GTW depot, located at 120 East 14th Street near Downtown Flint, was used by Amtrak until 1989 and demolished thereafter. The current station on Dort Highway provides easy access to I-69.
