Salinas is a passenger rail station in Salinas, California, United States. The depot, constructed in 1941 by the Southern Pacific Railroad, exhibits a pared down Spanish Revival style as influenced by the then-popular Art Deco movement. Spanish Revival elements include the red tile roof and stuccoed walls, while the Art Deco influence is visible in the rectilinear composition and clean lines.[3]

Greyhound moved its Salinas station here in 2015.[4]

The Transportation Agency for Monterey County has plans for expanding Caltrain commuter rail service to the station, with long term plans to extend Amtrak California's Capitol Corridor as well.[5][6][7]
