Station History

The depot at Flagstaff has been an integral part of the city since 1926, the year it was built by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. This Tudor Revival brick building with its cross-gabled roof was designed by one of the railroad’s engineering staff. It stands at what has historically been one of the busiest railroad corridors for both freight and passenger rail in the United States. The station also serves as the city’s Visitors Center.

Amtrak customers wishing to continue on to Williams, Ariz., to access the Grand Canyon Railway to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon may book a Thruway bus connection from Flagstaff to Williams as part of their reservation.

Flagstaff’s history is intertwined with railroad development in the western United States. Settled in 1876, the town grew rapidly from its inception due to the east-west expansion of the railroad, which made Flagstaff a desired transit and transport location. The town continued to grow alongside the bustling railroads that ran through its territory and was incorporated as a city in 1928. Today, Flagstaff sits as the county seat for Coconino County.

The city boasts a strong tourist center as a result of its proximity to Grand Canyon National Park, Oak Creek Canyon and historic Route 66. Flagstaff is home to Lowell Observatory where, in 1930, the former planet Pluto was first observed; Northern Arizona University is also located in the city.

Amtrak provides ticketing and baggage services at this station, which is served by two daily trains.
