Clifton is a New Jersey Transit train station located in Clifton, New Jersey that provides service via the Main Line. Travel time is about 30 minutes between Clifton and the Main Line southern terminus at Hoboken Terminal, where connections to PATH and NY Waterway take riders to New York City. Service is available to Pennsylvania Station in Midtown Manhattan via connections at Secaucus Junction. Northbound service is available to Suffern station in New York, where riders can connect to the Port Jervis Line.

The station is located on the border between the Athenia and Dutch Hill sections (Clifton Boulevard at Elm Street) of Clifton, with the Hoboken-bound platform in the Athenia section and the Suffern-bound platform located in the Dutch Hill section.

The station provides two free parking lots with enough space for 236 cars, and bicycle parking is also available near the Hoboken-bound platform. Clifton's station house building is open for commuters from the morning rush hour until the evening rush hour for passengers to wait for their trains. Passengers are also provided with benches on either side of the track and two shelters, one on each platform, are also available. The Suffern-bound platform recently received a new shelter replacing an older, dilapidated shelter.
