Description 

This is a historic railroad depot originally served the Michigan Central Railroad. In the 2000s, the station was vastly renovated (while retaining the historic parts of the depot) and today the station is expanded to include bays for city buses, making the station a modern, centralized hub for bus service, while also continuing to serve as a train station for Amtrak. Thus, the station is today the central hub for public transportation in Kalamazoo and is known today as the Kalamazoo Transportation Center.
