Fields Corner is a station on the rapid transit Red Line at Fields Corner in Dorchester, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. It opened on November 5, 1927, serving as the south end of the line for about a year. In addition to the two rapid transit platforms, one on each side of the line, there were streetcar tracks on each side, with the departing tracks at the north (railroad west) side split into two, and a bus loop under the south (east) track. Free transfers were available between all modes, though with buses a paper transfer was required. The lower level busway was later closed, and all buses (and trackless trolleys) were routed to the upper level. The upper level busways were closed in the 2000s for reconstruction.

A new Fields Corner station entrance lobby opened on Friday, December 22, 2006. After a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:05 am that day, Fields Corner became the final station to be converted to use the CharlieCard-based automated fare collection system.
