Church and 18th Street (also known as Right Of Way/18th Street) is a light rail stop on the Muni Metro J Church line, located in the southwest corner of Dolores Park in San Francisco, California. The station opened with the line on August 11, 1917. The inbound platform is located inside Dolores Park on a Muni-only right-of-way; the outbound platform is a boarding island on Church Street. Accessible mini-high platforms for both direction are located inside the park next to 18th Street.

In March 2014, Muni released details of the proposed implementation of their Transit Effectiveness Project (later rebranded MuniForward), which included a variety of stop changes for the J Church line. Under that proposal, the outbound platform would be moved inside Dolores Park opposite the inbound platform.[2]
