The Guadalupe Amtrak Station is an Amtrak rail station in the city of Guadalupe, California. It is served by Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner from San Luis Obispo to San Diego. Four Pacific Surfliner trains serve the station daily. This station also serves the city of Santa Maria via the Thruway Motorcoach.[2]

Similar to many passenger rail stations in southern California, the Guadalupe station was built in a Spanish Colonial Revival style featuring a barrel red-tiled roof and white stuccoed walls.[3]

Of the 73 California stations served by Amtrak, Guadalupe was the 57th-busiest in FY2010, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 30 passengers daily.[4]
