Crystal City is a side platformed Washington Metro station in the Crystal City neighborhood of Arlington, Virginia, United States. The station was opened on July 1, 1977, and is operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). Providing service for both the Blue and Yellow Lines, the station is located on 18th Street in between the Jefferson Davis Memorial Highway and South Bell Street. The station is also accessible from the underground network of shopping centers and restaurants extending beneath Crystal City.

This is the final indoor transfer point between the Blue and Yellow lines in the southbound direction. In inclement weather, commuters may prefer to transfer at Crystal City rather than at King Street–Old Town, which is outdoors.

The station is also served by the Metroway bus rapid transit line. Some Metroway buses terminate here rather than at Pentagon City station.
