Waldwick is a New Jersey Transit rail station served by the Main Line and Bergen County Line. It is located in Waldwick, Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. The station is located at the intersection of West Prospect Street, Lafayette Place and Hewson Avenue. The Waldwick station is the terminus for the Bergen County Line (except some through trains to Suffern) and Waldwick Yard is just past the station. The Waldwick Yard is used to layover trains that terminate or originate in Waldwick.

In Winter 2006, ground broke for a new passenger shelter on the southbound platform, which was completed in the following summer.

The historic original station house has been listed in the state and federal registers of historic places since 1984 and is part of the Operating Passenger Railroad Stations Thematic Resource.[7][8] The Waldwick Community Alliance[9] has leased the building for 25 years until 2034, and intends to restore it and to house a local museum.[10][11][12][12][13]
