Agios Stefanos (Greek: Σιδηροδρομικός Σταθμός Αγίου Στεφάνου) is a railway station in Agios Stefanos, north of Athens, Greece. The station was opened on 6 May 2005.[citation needed] It has two platforms. It is served by trains of Proastiakos from Piraeus to Chalcis.[2]

In the early years, the station was known under the name Bogiati (Μπογιάτι) or Vogiati (Βογιάτι), which derived from a common name of the settlement of Agios Stefanos. It was renamed to Oion (Οίον) and changed again to its current name in 2006.

An extension of Athens Metro Line 1, from Kifisia to Agios Stefanos, has been proposed.[3]

Popular culture[edit]

St. Stephen's Station (then Oi Station ) was the cinematic setting for "Thymaria train station" in the 1954 Greek film Neither Cat, Neither Lost, starring Vassilis Logothetidis.
