Greyhound provides intercity bus service to the station. It connects Altoona via one-seat rides to cities such as State Collegemarker, Harrisburgmarker, Philadelphiamarker, and New Yorkmarker to the east and Johnstownmarker and Pittsburghmarker to the west. Greyhound also links Altoona with many other cities and towns beyond those listed via transfers.

The Altoona Transportation Center is also served by Amtrak Pennsylvanian trains. These trains operate once per day in each direction. Until 2005, Altoona was served by a second daily train, the Three Rivers (a replacement service for the legendary Broadway Limited), an extended version of the Pennsylvanian that terminated in Chicagomarker. Upon its cancellation, the sole Pennsylvanian marked the first time in Altoona's significant railway history that the town was served by just a single, daily passenger train.
