Lodi Transit Center, also known as Lodi station, is an intermodal transit facility in Lodi, California. It serves Amtrak's San Joaquin rail line as well as local and intercity buses. It is located at 24 South Sacramento Street in Lodi, California.

History

Rail service to the area began in 1869, when the Central Pacific Railroad established a depot where the present station stands. Local landowning families had donated the site of the town eventually known as Lodi to the railroad as an incentive to build there. The original building burned down in 1906, and Southern Pacific Railroad, the successor to the Central Pacific, erected a new colonnade-style depot in 1907 half a block to the north. When Amtrak took over passenger rail service in 1971, the Lodi station closed.

In 1993, Amtrak studied the possibility of reopening stops in California's Central Valley, and interest grew in restoring Lodi station. The San Joaquin made a ceremonial stop there in 1999, and the city commenced plans to create an intermodal transit station, Lodi Transit Center. The $2.3 project involved moving the 1907 railroad building to its present location on South Sacramento Street to accommodate a new passenger platform, and additions including bus bays, a waiting room, a clock tower, and a Gateway Arch. Full rail service began on March 18, 2002. In 2011, the station saw new additions funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

In fiscal year 2010, Lodi was the 63rd-busiest of Amtrak's 73 California stations, boarding or detraining an average of about 20 passengers daily.
