Grand Opening Set for Troy, Mich., Station

A grand opening ceremony to mark the opening of the Troy (Mich.) Multi-Modal Transit Center will be held on Oct. 14.

The center is expected soon to replace nearby Birmingham as a suburban Detroit stop for Amtrak’s Chicago-Detroit (Pontiac) Wolverine Service.

The Troy city council has approved a 20-year lease agreement with Amtrak that will cover all costs to operate the center. The genesis of the center dates to 2000 when a nearby property owner gave the city title to the land needed to build it. But a dispute over ownership of the land landed in court. That dispute was recently resolved.
