Bloomfield station is a New Jersey Transit station in Bloomfield, New Jersey along the Montclair-Boonton Line. The station is located in downtown Bloomfield, the second within the municipality, just west of Bloomfield Avenue. This is the second station served on the line after Newark Broad Street Station after Watssesing Avenue station.

The current Glen Ridge, Bloomfield and Watsessing Avenue stations along the Montclair Branch were all built in 1912 during a grade separation program by the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad. Bloomfield Station has been on the National Register of Historic Places since June 22, 1984 and on the New Jersey State Historic Preservation Office listings since March 17, 1984.

The station has recently had two ticket vending machines (TVMs) installed on the eastbound platform (to Newark and New York). Due to this, New Jersey Transit conductors will add a $5 surcharge to inbound passengers who do not buy tickets at the provided machines, starting on August 10, 2010.
