The Cleveland Avenue station is a MAX light rail station in Gresham, Oregon. The light rail station is the 26th and final stop eastbound on the current Eastside MAX line. It is the eastern terminus of the Blue Line.

This station is a large park-and-ride station located just east of Cleveland Avenue in Gresham, between Northeast Division Street and East Powell Boulevard. Service began at this station in 1986, when the original Eastside MAX opened.

A short section of tracks and electrification continue east to allow for the storage of a two-car train on each track. There is also a double crossover switch directly west of the station which allows arriving and departing trains to use either track at the station. The station is named for Cleveland Avenue, an arterial street located just to the west, but access for cars is only via NE 8th Street. Alpha High School is not far from the station. The park and ride lot at the station tends to fill up at 8am on weekdays. There is also a Fix 4 Less auto repair shop one block from the station on 6th St.

The station was located in TriMet fare zone 4 from its opening in 1986[1] until September 1988,[2] and in zone 3 from then until September 2012, at which time TriMet discontinued all use of zones in its fare structure.[3]
