Kannapolis is an Amtrak train station in Kannapolis, North Carolina. It is served by the Carolinian and the Piedmont passenger trains. The street address is 201 South Main Street, and is located in the heart of downtown Kannapolis.

This facility was completed in December 2004 to serve as a permanent replacement for the temporary facility that was across the parking lot from where the current facility rests.[2] The new station blends with the existing architecture of downtown Kannapolis, with Gomes & Staub serving as architect and Titus Construction serving as general contractor.[3]
