Ampere was a former station on New Jersey Transit's Montclair-Boonton Line in East Orange, New Jersey. The station was built for the Lackawanna Railroad before 1909, when a housing development was built around the structure. The station was previously owned by the East Orange and Ampere Land Company, who was also supervisors of the land around it.[1] It was closed in 1991. The station was on the National Register of Historic Places before it was demolished.
