Location

Truckee station is an Amtrak train station in Truckee, California.

It is currently served by one daily passenger train in each direction, the California Zephyr. The westbound train arrives in the morning from Chicago and Denver heading for Sacramento and Emeryville with the eastbound train calling in mid-afternoon. Truckee is also served by Amtrak's "thruway motorcoaches" which run three round trips a day between Sparks and connect to trains at Sacramento.

History

The Central Pacific Railroad selected Truckee as the name of its railroad station by August 1867, even though the tracks would not reach the station until a year later in 1868.[3]

In FY2012 Truckee was the 61st-busiest of the 74 Amtrak stations in California, boarding or detraining an average of about 26 passengers daily.[4]

Bus service

The station is served by daily Greyhound buses,[5] and local Tahoe Truckee Area Regional Transit (TART).[6]
