The Trinidad station is a train station in Trinidad, Colorado served by Amtrak. It is served by Amtrak's Southwest Chief line. Trinidad station was originally built by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad, however it was not built in the Spanish Mission style, as many former Santa Fe Railroad stations were.

In the late 2000s, the South Central Council of Governments (South Central COG), which operates a local bus service, decided to pursue funding for a new multimodal transportation center to serve intercity passenger rail and local, regional, and intercity buses. Owned by the city but operated and maintained by the South Central COG, it would contain a waiting area with seating, restrooms, and ticket booths.[2]
