Pomona Metrolink station is a tram stop on the Eccles Line of Greater Manchester's light rail Metrolink system. It opened to passengers on 12 June 1999 as part of Phase 2 of the network's expansion, and is located at Pomona Docks in the City of Salford, in North West England.
As of 2013, Pomona Metrolink station is the least used stop on the Metrolink network, but allowance has been made in its design to support its development as an interchange station between the Eccles Line and a proposed Trafford Line to the Trafford Centre via Trafford Park.
Pomona Metrolink station is located at the edge of the now disused Pomona Docks owned by the Peel Group. The site is due for massive redevelopment with plans of an apartment complex and leisure facilities lining the waterfront.
Pomona is located on the Eccles Line with trams towards Eccles or MediaCityUK stopping every 12 minutes during the day Monday-Saturday, with trams running to Manchester Piccadilly via Cornbrook every 6 minutes. Trams run every 12 minutes Monday-Saturday evenings and Sunday daytime and every 15 minutes Sunday evenings between Manchester Piccadilly and Eccles, which calls at MediaCityUK.

Pomona station is not served directly by any bus service but several services stop on Chester Road.
