Glen Rock is a New Jersey Transit train station in the borough of Glen Rock, New Jersey, located on Rock Road at Main Street. The station is on the railroad's Main Line and is identified by signage at the station as Glen Rock, but is often referred to as Glen Rock–Main Line (and identified as such by trackside signage) to avoid confusion with the Boro Hall station located two blocks away on Rock Road near the intersection of Maple Avenue.

The station was constructed in 1905 by the Erie Railroad, replacing the station opened in 1848 by the Paterson and Ramapo Railroad.
