Greenlane Railway Station serves the Southern Line and Onehunga Line of the Auckland railway network. It has an island platform and is reached via a ramp from Green Lane East.

It is the nearest station to Ellerslie Racecourse and Greenlane Hospital and showgrounds. The station is served by bus route 007, which runs from St Heliers to Point Chevalier via Glen Innes and St Lukes. Early in the morning of 2 December 2007 a suspicious fire destroyed a derelict shed adjacent to the station - contrary to media reports at the time, it was not the station's goods shed.[2][3]

Services[edit]

Transdev Auckland, on behalf of Auckland Transport, operates suburban services on the Southern Line and Onehunga Line. Since March 2017, Onehunga Line services only stop at Remuera during evenings and weekends; on weekdays only Southern Line services call at the station. The typical weekday off-peak timetable is:[4]

  • 3 tph to Britomart
  • 3 tph to Papakura
