Valler is a station on the Kolsås Line of the Oslo Metro. It was located between Gjettum and Avløs, 14.8 kilometers (9.2 mi) from Stortinget.

The station opened on 1 January 1930 as part of the tramway Lilleaker Line.[1]

Along with most of the line, Valler has been closed for upgrades since 1 July 2006 and its service is temporarily provided by bus.[2] The line reopened on 12 October 2014, but it was decided that Valler would not re-open. Instead Gjettum station was moved closer to Valler. Gjettum, among other things, received longer platforms which can accommodate trains with up to six cars like most of the subway system.
