Dakota MRT Station (GPS: 1.30837, 103.88871; CC8) is an underground station of the Singapore MRT. The station is served by the Circle Line between the Mountbatten MRT Station (CC7) and Paya Lebar MRT Station (CC9/EW8).

The Dakota MRT Station is located on the Old Airport Road, surrounded by HDB flats and schools. It is also within walking distance of the Old Airport Road Hawker Centre, a popular spot for hawker food in Singapore.

The Dakota MRT Station is said to have been named after the Dakota DC-3 aircraft that used to land at Kallang Airport. One of these aircrafts belonging to the Royal Air Force Police crashed in a storm on 29 June, 1946, with no survivors.1
