River Edge Station is a New Jersey Transit rail station on the Pascack Valley Line. The station is one of two rail stations in River Edge, New Jersey and is located at River Edge Road and Park Avenue, one block east of Kinderkamack Road and three blocks west of River Road. The original station caught fire on February 8, 1901 from a spark from a passing train. The station was rebuilt and reopened on September 22, 1902. The station was named by a committee of donors that helped to fund the building of the new station and voted to name it River Edge station.[4] The station has a heated waiting area for passengers. The New Bridge Landing station is also located in River Edge.

This line runs to Hoboken Terminal with connections via the Secaucus Junction transfer station to New Jersey Transit service to New York Penn Station and to other NJ Transit rail service. Connections are available at Hoboken Terminal to other New Jersey Transit rail lines, the PATH Train, New York Waterways ferry service to the World Financial Center and other destinations and Hudson-Bergen Light Rail service.
