Tyrone Station is an Amtrak railway station located approximately 15 miles northeast of Altoona, Pennsylvania on Pennsylvania Avenue south of West 10th Street in Tyrone, Pennsylvania. The station is located in the south end of the borough. Tyrone Station is currently only served by Amtrak's Pennsylvanian, which operates once per day in each direction.

A new railroad station building exists at the stop, but it is only currently used as a museum for the Tyrone Historical Society. There is no ticket office at this station. Due to the small number of passengers, Tyrone Station is a flag stop.

Greyhound has an intercity bus stop less than 1/4 mile north of the station, at 20 West 10th Street.
