Amtrak Station Closing in Michigan City

(Michigan City, IN) - The Amtrak station in Michigan City is on borrowed time. According to Amtrak, the station will no longer be served by the railroad beginning April 4.


Riders can use the Amtrak station on Whittaker Street in downtown New Buffalo on the Wolverine and Blue Water routes. In addition, alternate rail service to places like Chicago is still available by using the South Shore Railroad commuter line from the Carroll stop in Michigan City and the stop at Beverly Shores.


No reason was given by Amtrak for closing its Michigan City station. However, there is speculation construction of the double-track on the South Shore commuter line to speed up travel to and from Chicago was a factor.


“We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patronage,” Amtrak officials said.
