Dunwoody is a train station in Dunwoody, Georgia, on the Red Line of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) rail system. It is located at the southwest corner of Perimeter Mall, and also serves the surrounding high-rise office parks in the Perimeter Center business district. From 1996 to 2000, it was the terminus of the old North Line.

The station serves Dunwoody as well as commuters from surrounding north DeKalb and Fulton counties. The Sandy Springs city limit is just 300 meters/1,000 feet west at the county line. It is the only Red Line station in DeKalb County, as the line (which otherwise runs in Fulton County, just west of the due north/south county line) swings east for this station.
