Red Bank is a commuter train station located in Red Bank, Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States. It is one of 20 New Jersey Transit commuter rail stations on the North Jersey Coast Line. It is located on Bridge Avenue between Monmouth and Oakland Streets, and consists of two high-level platforms on either sides of grade crossings.

Red Bank Station has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1976.[4][6] The 1876 station house was renovated in 2014 to it appearance when built using historically correct material and included the reconstruction of the "Yankee" gutters, installation of new downspouts and replacement of historic windows, shutters and gingerbread trim. Repairs were made to roof soffits and wood framing of the structure repoint the brick foundation wall and the brick chimney, recreate a brick "crown" atop the chimney. Exterior paint of the station matches its original color scheme.[7]
