West Green is a station stop on the Green Line of the RTA Rapid Transit in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. It is located at the western end of the parking lot for the Green Road station.

The station consists of two side platforms with two small shelters on the westbound platform. There is no entrance to the station other than through the parking area that it shares with the Green Road station. West Green station is only 150 yards (0.2 km) west of the Green station, and is designed to provide convenient boarding for riders who park in the western end of the parking area.

History

The station opened when the rapid transit line was extended one mile (1.6 km) east from Warrensville Center Road to Green Road. The extension was originally a single track. A second track was added to the extension in 1942 when increased ridership during World War II made single track operation no longer feasible.

In 1980 and 1981, the Green and Blue Lines were completely renovated with new track, ballast, poles and wiring, and new stations were built along the line. The renovated line along Shaker Boulevard opened on October 11, 1980.
