St. Petersburg (Amtrak) Station

This vast facility was Amtrak's former passenger train station in St. Petersburg, Florida.

It was built on its current site in 1963 by the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad following the government's effort to relocate the original facility (1913) near Downtown.

In 1968, the station's operations went to the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad until 1971, when Amtrak assumed operation.

In 1984, passenger rail service to St. Petersburg stalled when Amtrak discontinued servicing Pinellas County.

Operations continued from the St. Petersburg station for Amtrak's Thruway Motorcoach bus service, linking passengers to rail connections in Tampa and Orlando.

The station served as a boarding location for the bus service until the 1990s, when the station was closed.

Today, Amtrak continues to offer Thruway Motorcoach service for St. Petersburg and all of Pinellas County through a station located in Pinellas Park, Florida.

The Clearwater-St. Petersburg Amtrak Station retains the STP Amtrak code previously used by the 1963 St. Petersburg station.
