Tappan Street is a light rail station on the MBTA Green Line "C" Branch, located in the median of Beacon Street east of Tappan Street in Brookline, Massachusetts. The station consists of two side platforms which serve the "C" Branch's two tracks. Tappan Street has no bus connections and is not handicapped accessible.

Electrified streetcars have been running on the section of Beacon Street west of Coolidge Corner, including stops at Tappan Street, since 1889. However, only since the 1980s have the surface stops been given defined names and dedicated signage.
