Suitland is an island platformed Washington Metro station in Suitland, Maryland, United States. The station was opened on January 13, 2001, and is operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). Providing service for the Green Line, the station is located at Silver Hill Road and Suitland Parkway.

Groundbreaking for the final segment of the Green Line occurred on September 23, 1995,[2] and the station opened on January 13, 2001.[3] Its opening coincided with the completion of approximately 6.5 miles (10.5 km) of rail southeast of the Anacostia station and the opening of the Branch Avenue, Congress Heights, Naylor Road and Southern Avenue stations.[3]
