Wellington Station is a MBTA station on the Orange Line, located in Medford, Massachusetts, USA on the Revere Beach Parkway (a.k.a Route 16) slightly east of its intersection with Route 28.

While there are some restaurants and stores nearby, this station primary serves as a park and ride station and as a bus hub, with connections to several local bus routes. It features a large parking lot and a nearby parking garage connected to the station by an above-ground walkway, for a total of 1,316 spaces.

The Orange Line's main yard and shop is located here.


During the year 2006, the station has seen some changes. The new fare collection systems were installed to support the new Charlie Ticket. Also, the former people mover connecting the main station lobby to the Station Landing parking garage was demolished and an above-ground walkway, named the SkyWalk, was opened in March, 2007. The reason for the MBTA's upgrade of the connector is due to the anticipated influx in traffic between the garage and station because of the new development at Station Landing which includes two six-story apartment buildings, a twelve-story condominium complex, a large office building, and retail and dining establishments including Starbucks, Walgreens, H&R Block, Not Your Average Joe's, T-Mobile retail outlet, and Boston Sports Club.
