Salinas is a passenger rail station in Salinas, California, United States. The depot, constructed in 1941 by the Southern Pacific Railroad, exhibits a pared down Spanish Revival style as influenced by the then-popular Art Deco movement. Spanish Revival elements include the red tile roof and stuccoed walls, while the Art Deco influence is visible in the rectilinear composition and clean lines.[2]

Of the 74 California stations served by Amtrak, Salinas was the 51st-busiest in FY2012, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 54 passengers daily.[3]

Greyhound moved its Salinas station here in 2015.[4]

The Transportation Agency for Monterey County has plans for expanding this station to enable Caltrain or Amtrak's Capitol Corridor to be extended to this station as well.[5]

This station is located in Monterey County.
