Santa Ana Regional Transportation Center, as it is officially known, is a passenger rail station and transportation center in Santa Ana, California. It is utilized by Amtrak's "Pacific Surfliner" and Metrolink's Orange County Line and Inland Empire-Orange County Line trains. It also serves as a Greyhound station and a hub for the Orange County Transportation Authority bus system as well as a terminal for several Mexican bus tour entities.

When the station formally opened on September 7, 1985 it was the largest new rail station built in the United States since the completion of the New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal in the early 1950s. The center was erected on the site of a former Santa Fe Railway combination depot that had been constructed in 1939 and closed in 1982. [Gustafson and Serpico, p. 189]
