Monmouth Park is a seasonal New Jersey Transit commuter rail station on the North Jersey Coast Line, located in Oceanport, New Jersey, and serving Monmouth Park.

Railway service to Monmouth Park can be traced as far back as 1892. There were two stations: a diesel-only terminal station, and an electric-compatible station. The diesel-only stop is closer to the entrance of Monmouth Park where the special Pony Express service terminated, until the end of the 2005 racing season. That service was discontinued afterwards and so this area is no longer used as a train station (since filled over). During the 2007 Breeders Cup, the area where the single-track station is located served as a hospitality center/entrance.

The mainline electrified station is located approximately 1/4 mile from the track's main entrance on Port Au Peck Avenue. This station is served at least once an hour from approximately 10:30 a.m. until approximately 7 p.m. every day during racing season.
