Sutter Avenue – Rutland Road is a station on the IRT New Lots Line of the New York City Subway, located at the intersection of Sutter Avenue, Rutland Road, and East 98th Street in Brownsville, Brooklyn. It is served by the 3 train at all times except late nights, when the 4 train takes over service. Limited 2, 4 and 5 services are available during rush hours.

This elevated station, opened on December 24, 1920, has two side platforms and two tracks with space for a center track that was never added. The middle third of both platforms have beige windscreens and brown canopies supported by green frames and support columns. The remaining two-thirds have red, waist-high steel fences with lampposts at regular intervals. The station signs are in the standard black name plates in white lettering.

This station has one elevated station house beneath the platforms and tracks. Two staircases from the center of each platform go down to a waiting area/crossunder, where a turnstile bank provides access to/from the station. Outside fare control, there is a token booth and two staircases facing in opposite directions going down to the east side of East 98th Street at the T-intersection of Rutland Road. The north staircase is near the southern corner of the T-intersection of Sutter Avenue and East 98th Street. A third staircase goes down to the northwest corner of East 98th Street and Rutland Road.

This is the northernmost station on the IRT New Lots Line. To the north, the line curves west under Eastern Parkway and goes underground to become the IRT Eastern Parkway Line. The Manhattan-bound track goes underneath the New Lots Avenue-bound track on the south side of the IRT Eastern Parkway Line. A center track begins at a bumper block near the tunnel portal and merges with the two express tracks of the Eastern Parkway line south of Utica Avenue.
