Battle Creek is a train station in Battle Creek, Michigan served by Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system. The station serves as the split between the Blue Water and Wolverine lines.

The Battle Creek Amtrak Station was built as a replacement for two other old train stations, the Grand Trunk Railroad Battle Creek Station[2] and the Michigan Central Battle Creek station (a.k.a. Penn Central Railway Station). The Michigan Central Railroad depot has been on the National Register of Historic Places since April 16, 1971, while the Grand Trunk Depot was has been on the NRHP since 1980.

In September 2010, the state of Michigan won $3.6 million from the federal government to refurbish the station, including renovations to parts of the interior and exterior and bringing the station to ADA standards.[3] On August 3, 2011, a temporary station operated out of a trailer to the northwest of the station building was planned to open while renovations took place for the next nine months.[4]

Of the 22 Michigan stations served by Amtrak, Battle Creek was the seventh-busiest in FY2010, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 140 passengers daily.[5]
