The turbolift control was a starship subsystem which controlled turbolift operation.

In the 22nd century, turbolift control was a control panel inside each of the turbolift elevators, which operated whichever turbolift it was inside. (ENT: "Vanishing Point") The same term was also applied to a system aboard Federation starships in the 24th century, such as on the USS Enterprise-D, that regulated the turbolifts on board. (TNG: "Hide and Q")

On the NX-class in the 22nd century, particular turbolifts could be located (down to the accuracy of determining what deck the turbolift was on) from the engineering station on the Bridge. The question of whether the turbolift was empty or occupied could be determined from the same station. (ENT: "Shockwave") In vessels of the 23rd century, turbolift elevators could be controlled and regulated by the communications station on the ship's Bridge. (TOS: "The Naked Time")

In an hallucination experienced by Ensign Hoshi Sato in 2152, she imagined turbolift control being non-responsive to repeated attempts she made to press a button on the control panel in one of the turbolifts aboard Enterprise NX-01. (ENT: "Vanishing Point")

Captain Jean-Luc Picard attempted to contact turbolift control along with main engineering and security when Q transported the bridge crew of the Enterprise-D to an unknown world in 2364, leaving him alone on the main bridge, suspended in time. However, turbolift control did not respond. (TNG: "Hide and Q")
