The station will replace Amtrak’s Midway station and immediately serve the Empire Builder. Between 2012 and 2015, a planned expansion of the Northstar commuter rail service will move in to the station, and an extension of the light rail will open with an underground station below the depot’s front steps.

Plans/renderings available online suggest that there will be three tracks at the station. No information as to whether the station will provide parking/power/water/ice service to visiting private cars.
