The William F. Walsh Regional Transportation Center is the long-distance ground travel (rail and bus) terminal serving the Syracuse, New York area. It is served by Amtrak, Greyhound Lines, Megabus, Neon, and Trailways, and is located in the north of the city. Opened in 1999, it replaced the highly unpopular downtown bus station and even more unpopular Amtrak station in East Syracuse.

There were provisions built for OnTrack, Syracuse's now-defunct commuter train line, to connect directly to the station. Local bus service is provided by the Central New York Regional Transportation Authority (CENTRO).

The station is named for William F. Walsh, the former mayor of Syracuse and representative in the U.S. Congress.
