Here's an excerpt from the article:
The shooting will begin around the first week in October. The movie will be directed by Michael Bay, who shot portions of the movie "The Island" in downtown Detroit. His experience his last time around using Detroit as a location spot was so positive, he said he had to come back, according to his producer, Ian Bryce. Apparently, Detroit really knows how to roll out the red carpet for movie crews with cooperation from the city, the police department and a huge pool of talent, Detroit has become the come-to place for Hollywood. And we love it!
I don't recall any scene in the version of the Transformers Movie script that I read (dated February 2006) that included a scene in Detroit or at a train station so I'm not sure if the location will be represented as a train station or something else.

Having grown up in Fenton, MI (a suburb of Metro Detroit), I have to say that I'm extremely happy for Detroit. This is really exciting for a city that's had a couple of rough decades due to the decline of the auto industry in the Motor City. Congratulations Detroit - this Metro-Detroit-native-now-living-in-Chicago is rooting for you! Now all Detroit needs is the Detroit Tigers to get a division win to top off this news!!!
EDIT: My Dad just sent me a link on Wikipedia for Detroit's "Central Station" which basically gives a rundown on the entire history of this historic building: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan_Central_Station.
