History
Opened 1964

Arna Station (Norwegian: Arna stasjon) is the second largest train station in Bergen, Norway; located in the Arna borough on the east side of Ulriken and between the two tunnels Ulriken Tunnel and Arnanipa. The present station was opened in 1964, when the tunnels was completed. The old station, located north of the new station, is still in use for heritage trains on Gamle Vossebanen.

All passenger trains on Bergensbanen stop at Arna. The most frequent trains are shuttle trains which run between the Bergen Railway Station and Arna, providing the fastest connection between downtown Bergen and Arna. These normally operate each half hour, or hourly in weekends and evenings.
