Green Street (signed as Green) is a rapid transit station on the MBTA Orange Line, located in the southern part of the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts at 150 Green Street, near the intersection of Green Street and Amory Street. It primarily serves surrounding residential neighborhoods, as well Jamaica Plain's primary business district on Centre Street to the west.

The Gallery @ Green Street was a contemporary art gallery located in a storefront of the station building. It paid no rent, but did install air conditioning and a bathroom in return for the space. In December 2006, the space became the home of a successor gallery, AXIOM: Center for New and Experimental Media, which is operated by a non-profit artists' collective, and features rotating shows of artworks incorporating modern technology.
The station also provides access to many parks located in Jamaica Plain. Franklin Park is east of the station, and to its west is Jamaica Pond, part of Boston's Emerald Necklace of parks. The station is also located along the linear Southwest Corridor Park which tracks the Southwest Corridor.
Green Street was not built as a bus transfer station, and lacks an off-street busway. Since the 48 Jamaica Plain Loop, Monument - Jackson Square Station via Green Street & Stony Brook Stations route was discontinued on July 1, 2012, Green Street and nearby Stony Brook have no direct bus connections. Forest Hills, the next stop to the south, is a major bus transfer station.
