December 15, 2014 – There’s a new gateway to the Dearborn community – the newly constructed 16,000 square foot Dingell Transit Center. It’s now open and Amtrak trains are running daily with fresh options for commuters. Trains are conveniently connecting commuters and travelers to Dearborn, Ann Arbor, Detroit and Pontiac.
The City of Dearborn purchased the land for the transit center from Ford Land. “We’re enthusiastic about the completed project and its impact on the community,” said Donna Inch, Ford Land Chairman and CEO. “The center provides an opportunity to improve connectivity to the region and the Midwest.”
As an added bonus, the Dingell Transit Center is intermodal. It’s connecting travelers via train, bus, and bike as well as on foot to shopping, recreation, education, work and cultural attractions in the Dearborn area. A pedestrian bridge built over the train tracks also allows foot travelers to enter the Henry Ford Complex which features the Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village, the IMAX, and the Ford Rouge Factory Tour facility.
