Hoppers Crossing station opened on 16 November 1970, on the Werribee side of the adjacent level crossing. It was relocated to the Flinders Street side of the crossing in 1983 in conjunction with the electrification of the line to Werribee.
The name of the area, and of the station, arises from the fact that Stephen Hopper (1832-1908) was an early resident of the area, and was also employed to open and close the railway gates at the level crossing adjacent to where the station is now situated.
