List of Staten Island Railway stations
The Staten Island Railway (formerly known as the Staten Island Rapid Transit) is a rapid transit system on Staten Island, New York. Its operator has been the Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York since 1971, whereas prior to that year it was owned by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.
This list contains all stations currently open on the Staten Island Railway (SIR). All active SIR stations are located on the Main Line, which spans from Tottenville to the St. George Ferry Terminal. Stations tend to be built either above ground level on embankments or are open-cut stations built below ground level, but open to the sky.

Disused and former stations
The majority of former stations are located on the North Shore Branch and South Beach Branch, which were closed to passenger service at midnight on Tuesday, March 31, 1953. A small western portion of the North Shore Branch that is disconnected to the Main Line is used for freight service, and a smaller eastern portion of the same branch provided seasonal service to the RCB Ballpark (where the Staten Island Yankees play) passenger station from 2001 to 2009. Restoration is being discussed along this mostly abandoned 6.1-mile (9.8 km) line as part of the Staten Island light rail plan. The South Shore Branch was abandoned and demolished except for a remaining stanchion on St. John's Avenue and the Robin Road Trestle. This 4.1-mile (6.6 km) line diverged from the Main Line south of the Clifton station and lay to the east of the Main Line.
