Weymouth Landing/East Braintree station (signed as East Braintree/Weymouth Landing) is an MBTA Commuter Rail station on the border of Braintree and Weymouth, Massachusetts. It serves the Greenbush Line. It is located in Weymouth Landing, and consists of a single side platform serving the line's one track. The station is fully handicapped accessible.
The New Haven Railroad abandoned its remaining Old Colony Division lines on June 30, 1959, after the completion of the Southeast Expressway. The Weymouth station had been located just west of Commercial Street.
The MBTA reopened the Greenbush Line on October 31, 2007, with Weymouth station located between Commercial Street and Quincy Avenue. Original plans called for a 450-foot (140 m) platform between the streets, but the MBTA ultimately decided to build a standard 800-foot (240 m) platform that extends under the streets at either end.
The station is also served by one MBTA Bus route:
