Bekkestua is a station and tram stop that is served both by Oslo Metro on Kolsås Line and Oslo Tramway on Lilleaker Line situated at Bekkestua in Bærum, Norway. It is the terminus of the Lilleaker Line for tramway.

Located between Ringstabekk and Gjønnes, it was reopened on 15 August 2011 after being closed on 1 July 2006. Between 1 July 2003 and November 2004, Bekkestua was the end station on the Kolsås Line.[1] For a while the station was only being served by the Oslo Tramway line 13, while the station was closed for an upgrade.

Since 2 December 2007 tram operations (line 13) have returned on this line from Lilleaker to Bekkestua. Operations beyond Lilleaker use SL95 trams as there is no turnback loop at Bekkestua. The tram operations were discontinued in 2009, but reopened in January 2014 after technical difficulties delayed the opening by one month. Bekkestua bus terminal is only a minute walk from Platform 1, 2 (T-Bane) and 3 (Trikk). Bekkestua Bus Terminal is served by bus route 140, 140N, 150,150N,220, 230 as well as 211, 212, 213, 214 and 216. FB3 also operates in Bekkestua. Øygardveien served by 150E ({Bykrysset}-Gullhaug-Nationaltheatret) is a 10–15 minutes walk away.
