The Hanford Amtrak Station is a train station in Hanford, California served by Amtrak. It was built by the San Francisco and San Joaquin Valley Railway and is one of only three SF&SJV stations left in existence.

In the early 1990s, the city sponsored a rehabilitation of the depot that included rebuilding the former freight section and enclosing the outdoor waiting room. A wide, curving canopy was added to the trackside façade to provide travelers with better protection from the sun and rain. Interior modifications resulted in a new layout that added office and commercial space.[2]

In 2006, the city moved forward with $1.5 million in improvements to the adjacent bus bays that accommodate local and regional lines and Amtrak’s Thruway Motorcoach service. A circa 1880s Southern Pacific wooden freight depot was moved to the site to provide a waiting room and ticket desk for bus passengers.[2]

Of the 73 California stations served by Amtrak, Hanford was the 20th-busiest in FY2010, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 500 passengers daily.[3]
