The Santa Fe Passenger Depot (Fresno Station)
The station is at 2650 Tulare Street, just off Santa Fe Street, across from Fresno City Hall. It is in the middle of a rough triangle made by the three freeways in the city (California State Route 99, California State Route 41, and California State Route 180) and is easy to get to from all three.
The station is within easy walking distance of City Hall, the Fresno County government center, and the recently revitalized historic Fulton Street. Visitors can enjoy downtown Fresno’s landmark theaters, breweries, restaurants, and boutique shops.
It is served by intercity passenger trains from San Joaquins, intercity buses from Greyhound, and regional transit services like Fresno Area Express, Fresno County Rural Transit Agency, and the Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System during the summer.
The station has a daily indoor waiting room open from 5:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Inside the station are a baggage check service, baggage assistance, and an automatic check-in device. In addition to the ticketing agent, there is a Quik-Trak ticket kiosk.

The Santa Fe passenger depot has two tracks, but only one side platform sees regular service. Amtrak trains switch onto this track just north or south of the station, leaving the main line clear for freight trains.
A narrow island platform between the tracks is occasionally used when Amtrak trains cannot switch onto the station track. Passengers are not allowed to wait on the island platform.
