Portage is an Amtrak intercity train station in Portage, Wisconsin, served by Amtrak's daily Empire Builder service. The depot is a small square brick structure constructed during the Amtrak era, that is located near a Canadian Pacific Railway office (which occupies what was formerly the Portage passenger depot.) There are no station staff in Portage. In October 2011 Lamers Bus Lines began offering a daily stop at the station, with service between Madison and Wausau.[2]
