Glen Ridge is a New Jersey Transit station at the intersection of Bloomfield Avenue and Ridgewood Avenue in Glen Ridge, New Jersey along the Montclair-Boonton Line.

The Glen Ridge, Bloomfield and Watsessing Avenue stations along the Montclair branch were all built in 1912 during a grade separation program by the Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad. The Glen Ridge station, like the Watsessing Avenue station, was set below street level.

It is a contributing property to the Glen Ridge Historic District and the Operating Passenger Railroad Stations Thematic Resource.[3]
