St. Paul Street is a DART Light Rail station located near the Arts District of downtown Dallas, Texas on Bryan Street, between St. Paul and Harwood Streets. It opened on June 14, 1996 and is a station on the Red, Orange, Green and Blue lines, serving the Trammell Crow Center, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, Patriot Tower and First Baptist Church (Dallas, Texas).

St. Paul Station is located near St. Paul Street in downtown Dallas. The street received its name in the 1930s, not out of religious interest, but as a protest against the Volstead Act, a national law that banned alcoholic beverages. The city fathers located a passage in the Bible, attributed to St. Paul, that said "drink a little wine, for your stomach's sake".
