Yuma is an Amtrak station at 281 South Gila Street in Yuma, Arizona, United States. Passenger rail service is provided thrice-weekly in each direction by the Sunset Limited and the Texas Eagle over this portion of its route. The station's island platform, which is adjacent to the station building site, are accessible through a short pedestrian tunnel.

The former structure, Southern Pacific Railroad Depot (Yuma, Arizona), was built in 1926 by the Southern Pacific Railroad. After SP ceased passenger operations upon Amtrak's start in 1971, the station housed the Yuma Fine Arts Museum. The depot was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The structure was devastated in a May 1993 fire and was razed in the summer of 1994. [2]
