Hanford is a train station in Hanford, California served by Amtrak. The station also services the larger city of Visalia, California 20 miles to the east. It was built by the San Francisco and San Joaquin Valley Railway and is one of only three SF&SJV stations left in existence.
In the early 1990s, the city sponsored a rehabilitation of the depot that included rebuilding the former freight section and enclosing the outdoor waiting room. A wide, curving canopy was added to the trackside façade to provide travelers with better protection from the sun and rain. Interior modifications resulted in a new layout that added office and commercial space.
In 2006, the city moved forward with $1.5 million in improvements to the adjacent bus bays that accommodate local and regional lines and Amtrak’s Thruway Motorcoach service. A circa 1880s Southern Pacific wooden freight depot was moved to the site to provide a waiting room and ticket desk for bus passengers.
Hanford served an average of approximately 586 passengers daily in FY2015.
