Park Street Station of the MBTA, located at the intersection of Park Street and Tremont Street in Boston at a corner of Boston Common, is the main transfer point between the Green Line and the Red Line. Throughout the green and red lines, trains labeled "inbound" are headed towards this station, while those labeled "outbound" are headed away.

The Green Line portion of this station was originally constructed in 1897, making it one of the two oldest subway stations in the United States, along with Boylston. The Red Line portion beneath it, sometimes called "Park Street Under", was constructed in 1912.
