Latrobe Station is an Amtrak rail station located about 40 miles east of Pittsburgh at 329 McKinley Avenue, Latrobe, Pennsylvania. The station is near the center of the city, and is currently served only by Amtrak's "Pennsylvanian", which operates once per day in each direction. Until 2005, Latrobe 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 Latrobe's railway history that the town was served by just a single, daily passenger train.

The station was opened in 1903 by the Pennsylvania Railroad as part of a project to elevate the right-of-way as it passed through Latrobe. The architect, William H. Brown, used a Late Victorian style. The station is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The historic station itself exists, but currently serves as a restaurant. There is no ticket office available at the small shelter (complete with bench seats) which serves at the current station. Due to the small number of passenger, Latrobe Station is a flag stop.

The Westmoreland County Transit Authority has one bus route, Route 9/9A - Greensburg/Latrobe/Derry, that stops adjacent to the train station and one other route, Route 20F - New Florence/Greensburg, that stops within 1/4 mile of the station. Greyhound also has an intercity bus stop about 1/4 mile from the station, at 803 Alexandria Street.
