Fellgate Metro station serves the Fellgate area of Jarrow, in South Tyneside, England. It is on the Green line of the Tyne and Wear Metro, and opened in 2002 as part of the extension of the system to Sunderland. Before the Metro extension to Sunderland had been mooted, there were plans for a railway station here.

Mainline Heavy rail services provided by Northern Rail from Sunderland through Newcastle Central pass through the station hourly but do not stop, while there are also freight trains and empty Grand Central workings between Heaton depot and Sunderland.
