West End is a DART Light Rail station located in the West End Historic District of downtown Dallas, Texas (USA) on Pacific Avenue, between Market and Lamar Streets near CBD West Transfer Center. It opened on June 14, 1996, and is a station on the Red, Blue, Green, and Orange lines, serving the West End Marketplace, Dallas Alley, the Dallas World Aquarium and Zoo, the Sixth Floor Museum (in the Texas School Book Depository), Dealey Plaza, the Old Red Courthouse with its Dallas Visitors Center and El Centro College and is within walking distance of the American Airlines Center and the rest of Victory Park.

This is the westernmost stop on the four stop trunk segment shared by all four lines. West of here, approaching the TRE tracks, the Orange and Green Lines branch north and the Red and Blue Lines branch south.

Following the shooting of Dallas police officers on July 7, 2016, the station was closed during the investigation of the nearby crime scene. Trains were stopping at all transit mall stations except West End, which they passed through during the incident. News oultlets reported that ridership was lower than normal just after the attacks at nearby stations such as Akard, St. Paul, and Pearl/Arts District, typically busy stations during the morning rush hour.
