High Bridge is a railway station in New Jersey, United States. It is the western terminus on New Jersey Transit's Raritan Valley Line. It is located in High Bridge at the southern end of the station.

The parking lot for the station is located one block to the west. The station only uses the southern track for inbound and outbound trains. The 1913 station house is currently used for storage and there is a covered waiting area under the building canopy. This station has limited weekday service and no weekend service.

Until 1983, Raritan Valley service continued westward to Phillipsburg, New Jersey. Limited service and low ridership led NJT to discontinue all service west of High Bridge. Since service ended, there have been repeated calls for resumption of daily service.
