Northeast 60th Avenue is a light rail station on the MAX Blue, Green and Red Lines in Portland, Oregon. It is the 12th stop eastbound on the eastside MAX line. It is located on the boundary between the North Tabor and Rose City Park neighborhoods.

The station is at the intersection of NE 60th Avenue and Interstate 84, located above a Union Pacific line, but below street level. This station is connected to NE 60th Ave. by a series of stairs and elevators. The single island platform is separated from the westbound lanes of the freeway by only a low wall and the eastbound MAX tracks, causing the platform level of this station to be 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]
