Kings Highway is an express station on the IND Culver Line of the New York City Subway. Served by the F train at all times, it is located at Kings Highway and McDonald Avenue in the Gravesend neighborhood of Brooklyn. The main entrance is on Kings Highway with a secondary exit at Avenue S that can be accessed at the opposite end of the platform.

The station has three tracks and two island platforms, and is the last stop for some rush-hour trains. Although the express track continues south of the station, there are no express stops beyond Kings Highway. Instead, the track offers the option of switching to either local tracks between the Avenue X and Avenue U stations before going directly into Coney Island Yard south of the Avenue X station.
