Cohasset Station is a rail station on the MBTA Commuter Rail system in Cohasset, Massachusetts. The station, located at 115 Chief Justice Cushing Highway (Route 3A), is the eighth of ten along the MBTA's Greenbush Line, which provides service between Scituate and Boston. The line, which reopened on October 31, 2007, was part of the Old Colony Railroad, which had not had passenger service since 1959.

An abandoned rail spur to the Hingham Naval Ammunition Depot Annex has been converted to a bicycle path, now linking this station to Wompatuck State Park.

The station has a sizable parking lot along with drop off area. It serves an average of 356 people inbound to Boston per weekday. It is 19.9 miles to South Station and 7.7 miles to Greenbush.[1]
