Michigan City is a train station in Michigan City, Indiana served by Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system. The Wolverine line stops here three times a day, 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.
