Greensburg Station is an Amtrak railway station located approximately convert|30|mi east of Pittsburgh at Harrison Avenue and Seton Hill Drive in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. The station is located just north of the city center, and is currently served only by Amtrak's "Pennsylvanian", which operates once per day in each direction. Until 2005, Greensburg 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 Greensburg's railway history that the town was served by just a single, daily passenger train.

The station was opened in 1912 by the Pennsylvania Railroad as part of a project to elevate the right-of-way as it passed through Greensburg. William Cookman served as architect. 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 which serves as the current station.

The Westmoreland County Transit Authority has its transit center located at 41 Bell Way in Greensburg, which is approximately 1/3 mile south of the train station. All WCTA bus routes that pass through Greensburg Station at transit center. Greyhound also has a bus stop in the city, located at the WCTA transit center.
