Bratislava-Petržalka railway station is a station in Petržalka, the southern part of Bratislava. The station was rebuilt in the 1990s as a terminus for international trains to and from Vienna, which restarted in 1999 after having stopped in 1945.[1] Shuttle trains between the station and Wien Hauptbahnhof station operate approximately once per hour.

The station is a connection point between the southern Slovak 25 kV/50 Hz electrification and Austrian 15 kV/16.7 Hz.[1]

Public transport bus line No. 80 connects the station with the city center and No. 93 (it is necessary to use station's underpass to get to the stop of No. 93) connects the station with Bratislava hlavná stanica where it is possible to transfer to line No. 61 to the M. R. Štefánik Airport or to line No. 210 to the central bus station at Mlynské Nivy.
