North Quincy is a station on the MBTA Red Line rapid transit line, located at East Squantum Street between Hancock Street and Newport Avenue in Quincy, Massachusetts. It serves North Quincy High School, the State Street Bank complex, and the North Quincy and Montclair neighborhoods. Its other facilities include bus connections at street level and a 1,200-space parking lot.

It opened in 1971 along with Wollaston and Quincy Center as the first section of the South Shore Line section of the Red Line,[2] and is the only Quincy MBTA station not to have been a station of the Old Colony Railroad (being equidistant from the sites of the Atlantic and Norfolk Downs stations). North Quincy is the northernmost station on the Braintree Branch.
