The Expo Center station is a light rail station on the MAX Yellow Line in Portland, Oregon, United States. It is the last stop northbound on the Interstate MAX extension.

This station is a large park and ride station located on the grounds of the Portland Expo Center. It is set up as a modified side platform station, with the two platforms serving three tracks. The extra track allows the storage of an overflow train for events at the Expo Center.

Although tracks and electrification end directly inside the station, it is designed to allow a future northbound extension (to Vancouver, Washington) to be easily constructed.

Both the landscaping and the artwork at the station are themed in a Japanese style. This recalls the temporary Japanese internment camp that existed here during the early days of World War II.
