Brookline Hills is a light rail station on the "D" branch of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Green Line located in Brookline, Massachusetts. The station is located near Brookline High School and the intersection of Cypress and Tappan Streets. It consists of two side platforms at grade level, serving the two tracks of the line. Brookline Hills is located 22 minutes away from Park Street.
The original Brookline Hills station opened in 1852 on the Highland Branch, which at the time was a conventional commuter rail line. After 1886, loop service was run via what is now the Framingham/Worcester Line and later the Needham Line. In 1892, a new station designed by Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge was opened. The final trains on the line ran on May 31, 1958. The line was converted to light rail by the M.T.A. and Brookline Hills reopened on July 4, 1959, along with the rest of the "D" branch. The 1892 depot is no longer extant.
