Johnstown is an Amtrak railway station in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, United States. Designed by Kenneth MacKenzie Murchison and built in 1916, the station is at 47 Walnut Street, north of downtown Johnstown across the Little Conemaugh River. Today, the station is served by Amtrak's Pennsylvanian, which operates once daily in each direction.

Until 2005, Johnstown was served by a second daily train, the Three Rivers (a replacement service for the Broadway Limited), an extended version of the Pennsylvanian that terminated in Chicago. Upon its cancellation, the sole Pennsylvanian marked the first time in Johnstown's railway history that the town was served by just a single daily passenger train.

The Pennsylvanian connects Johnstown to Altoona, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, and New York to the east and Greensburg and Pittsburgh to the west. Staffed ticket service is available for both daily departures.

CamTran, the local public transit provider in the greater Johnstown/Cambria County area, has two routes that stop at the train station:

  • Route 16 - Prospect
  • Route 18 - Downtown Shuttle
  • The primary Camtran transit center is about one-half mile to the southeast of the Amtrak station. Greyhound buses also stop at the transit center. Westmoreland County Transit Authority's Route 11 provides weekday service between Latrobe, PA and CamTran Transit Center.

    The station can be seen in the 1977 film Slap Shot.
