Jåttå Station (Norwegian: Jåttå holdeplass) is a railway station located at Jåttå in Stavanger, Norway. The station is served by the Jæren Commuter Rail between Stavanger and Egersund. The station is 6.5 kilometres (4.0 mi) south of Stavanger and was used as an extra stop for trains when there were football games at Viking Stadion.

History[edit]

The station was opened along with the football stadium in 2001, but closed on January 6, 2008 when it was replaced by the close-by Jåttåvågen Station, the first part of the new double track between Stavanger and Sandnes to open.
