Riverway is a light rail station on the MBTA Green Line "E" Branch, located at the intersection of South Huntington Avenue and Huntington Avenue in Boston, Massachusetts, slightly east of Brookline Village. The station is named for the Riverway parkway which runs on an overpass just to the west.

The station is located on a street running segment of the "E" Branch; trains run in mixed traffic rather than a dedicated median. The station has no platforms; riders wait on the sidewalks (shared with bus stops for the route 39 bus) and cross the street to reach trains. Because of this, the station is not handicapped accessible.

Riverway is also the closest surface transfer between the "D" and "E" branches of the Green Line; Brookline Village station is about 1,500 feet (460 m) to the west.[2]
