Governor: “I appreciate the incredible commitment that Ford has to the city of Detroit. This is an exciting day not just for Ford and the city of Detroit, but the entire state of Michigan. This iconic train station has long been a symbol of the city’s decay, but from this day on it will be indicative of Detroit’s incredible comeback and all that is possible for the Comeback City’s future.”

Lt. Governor: “Ford’s plans to give the Michigan Central Station new life is huge for Corktown, all of Detroit and the entire state of Michigan. Thank you, Ford Motor Company, for your continued commitment to Michigan’s Comeback City. The Michigan Central Station was a symbol of Detroit’s rise and fall. It will now tell the story of Detroit rising again.”
