Wu Kai Sha Station is the northeastern terminal station on the Ma On Shan Line of the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) system in Hong Kong. It is located between Sai Sha Road and Sha On Street in Wu Kai Sha, serving the many housing estates and schools nearby. The station was originally named "Lee On Station" when the Ma On Shan Line was under construction, because the station is located to the east of Lee On Estate.

The station will be the terminus of the under-construction East West Corridor.
