The station was designed by William Benson Storey for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway and is very similar to the Stockton – San Joaquin Street Station. There is 5,400 sq ft (500 m2) for passenger service, and another 12,300 sq ft (1,140 m2) available for lease.
The station was once the Santa Fe's Valley Division Headquarters, and was expanded or renovated nine times between 1908 and 1985. Sante Fe closed the station for passenger service in 1966 and completely shuttered the building in the early 1990s. When passenger service to Fresno was reinstated on March 5, 1974 Amtrak used a space in the nearby freight house. By the time the city of Fresno purchased the station in 2003, it had fallen into disrepair. The station reopened on February 12, 2005 after a US$6 million renovation project largely restored it to original 1899 appearance.
Of the 73 California stations served by Amtrak, Fresno was the twelfth-busiest in FY2010, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 950 passengers daily.
