Hollywood/Northeast 42nd Avenue Transit Center is a light rail station in the MAX Light Rail system and is located in the Hollywood District of Portland, Oregon. It is the 11th stop eastbound on the eastside MAX main line. It is served by the Blue, Green and Red Lines.

The station is located south of the intersection of Northeast 42nd Avenue and Halsey Street. The platform is between Interstate 84 and a Union Pacific Railroad line and is connected by stairs and an elevator to a pedestrian bridge which connects to transit center bus bays to the north and neighborhoods to the south, across the freeway. The platform is separated from the freeway only by the eastbound tracks and a low crash wall, causing the platform level of this station to be somewhat noisy most hours of the day.

The station was located in TriMet fare zone 2 from its opening in 1986[1] until September 2012, at which time TriMet discontinued all use of zones in its fare structure.[2]
