The Missouri-Pacific Railroad Depot-Hot Springs is a historic former railroad station at Broadway and Market Street in Hot Springs, Arkansas. It is a single-story masonry structure, roughly V-shaped due to the triangular parcel, with a tile hip roof with broad eaves supported by Italianate wooden brackets. A Tuscan tower rises above the station, and its walls consist of bays of compound round-arch windows. The station was built c. 1917 by the Missouri-Pacific Railroad, and is a major reminder of the importance of the railroad to the growth and success of Hot Springs as a resort community.[2]

It is now used as the Transportation hub for Hot Springs Intracity Transit, as well as a Greyhound Bus Station.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.[1]
