Glendale Transportation Center is an Amtrak and Metrolink rail station in the city of Glendale, California. It is served by the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner intercity rail route and the Metrolink Ventura County Line and Metrolink Antelope Valley Line commuter rail routes.
Originally known as the Glendale Southern Pacific Railroad Depot, it was built by the Southern Pacific Railroad in the Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival architectural styles in 1923. It had replaced the Atwater Tract Office dating from 1883. The city bought the depot from Southern Pacific in 1989 and acquired adjacent properties to create an intermodal center. Restoration of the historic building and the construction of other elements of the intermodal center cost approximately $6 million.

The station also serves as a stop for Greyhound Lines buses, but only when passengers are ticketed to or from here, because there is no longer an office. The future plan for this stop, concerning tickets, is to have passengers go and buy tickets elsewhere or online. There is no longer a Greyhound ticketing kiosk here.
