Johnstown Station is an Amtrak railway station at 47 Walnut Street, Johnstown, Pennsylvania, United States. The station is north of downtown Johnstown across the Little Conemaugh River. Designed by Kenneth MacKenzie Murchison and built in 1916, Johnstown's 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.
Primary cities served on Amtrak to and from Johnstown include 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.

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