Johnstown Station is an Amtrak railway station located at 47 Walnut Street, Johnstown, Pennsylvania, United States. The station is located north of downtown Johnstown across the Little Conemaugh River. Johnstown station is currently only served by Amtrak's "Pennsylvanian", which operates once daily in each direction. Until 2005, Johnstown was served by a second daily train, the "Three Rivers" (a replacement service for the legendary "Broadway Limited"), an extended version of the "Pennsylvanian" that terminated in Chicago. Upon its cancellation, the sole "Pennsylvanian" marked the first time in Johnstown's railway history that the town was served by just a single, daily passenger train.

Primary cities served on Amtrak to and from Johnstown include Altoona, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, and New York to the east and Greensburg and Pittsburgh to the west. Staffed ticket service is available for both daily departures.

In addition to the Amtrak service, CamTran, the local public transit provider in the greater Johnstown/Cambria County area, has two routes that stop at the train station:
*Route 16 - Prospect
*Route 18 - Downtown Shuttle.

The primary Camtran transit center is located approximately 1/2 mile to the southeast of the Amtrak railway station. Greyhound buses also stop at the transit center.
