Manasquan is a railway station in Manasquan, New Jersey, United States. It is served by trains on New Jersey Transit's North Jersey Coast Line. In May 2011, ticket vending machines were installed on both sides of the station depot at Manasquan. Commuter parking is free at the station, but it shares its lot with the customers of the pub adjacent to station.[2]

This station is not listed as accessible by New Jersey Transit. Passengers must use the train stairs to climb up to the cars or descend to street level. There is no ramp or platform to aid the handicapped in boarding.
