The station was revitalized as a multi-modal transportation hub for the mid-Willamette Valley after three decades of neglect as private railroads abandoned passenger rail service. In response to increasing highway congestion and a renewed interest in passenger rail services, ISTEA funds were used to purchase the station from a private railroad company and to serve the community and passengers.
