Kiato (Greek: Σιδηροδρομικός Σταθμός Κιάτου, Sidirodromikos Stathmos Kiatou) is a railway station in Kiato in the northern Peloponnese, Greece. The station is located a kilometre west of the town, near the Greek National Road 8A (PatrasCorinth highway).

It opened on July 9, 2007 as the western terminus of the line from Athens Airport. Initially the station served as an exchange point for passengers to Patras on the old metre gauge SPAP line to Patras, but all traffic was suspended indefinitely in December 2010 for cost reasons. The nearby old Kiato station was also closed. Passengers for Patras must now change to bus services at Kiato.

As of 2013 the station is served by one train per hour to Athens Airport.[2]
