Tyler/Vernon station is a DART Light Rail station in Dallas, Texas. It is located at Tyler Street and Vernon Avenue in the Oak Cliff neighborhood. It opened on June 14, 1996 and is a station on the Red Line, serving the nearby residential and commercial areas.

Originally there was no DART parking lot at this station (making it one of the few stations with no parking facilities) but a small pay parking lot, nestled between houses in the mainly residential area, was adjacent to the station. However, this small lot is now part of the station facility and no longer charges for parking.
