Wu Kai Sha Station is the northeastern terminus on the Ma On Shan Line of the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) system in Hong Kong. It is located between Sai Sha Road and Sha On Street, serving the many housing estates and schools nearby.

The station was originally named "Lee On Station" when the Ma On Shan Line was under construction, because the station is located in the east of Lee On Estate.

The station is also intended to be the terminus of the proposed East-west Line.
