Republic was a station stop along the Ronkonkoma Branch for employees of the Fairchild Engine & Airplane Manufacturing Company and the nearby Republic Airport. It opened on December 9, 1940 and was closed in 1986.[1][2]

Discussion has periodically surfaced of reopening the station. As part of the current project to add double track from Farmingdale to Ronkonkoma, the MTA is considering reopening Republic station.[3]
