Metuchen Station is a New Jersey Transit station on the Northeast Corridor Line, in Metuchen, New Jersey. It is on Main Street between Pennsylvania and Woodbridge Avenues; the platforms are on an overpass over Main Street. The New York City-bound platform and station office are accessible from Woodbridge Avenue, while the Trenton-bound platform is accessible from Pennsylvania Avenue. There is a station office but no station agents and passengers must use a ticket machine. There is a newsstand in the waiting room of the northbound platform that operates on weekday mornings during rush hour. A private concierge service operated between 2001–2003, but is now closed. There is, however, a taxi stand on Pennsylvania Avenue across from the station. The station was built in 1888 by the Pennsylvania Railroad, which turned it over to Amtrak in 1971, and it was significantly renovated in 1979.
