Kitseküla is situated between two railway corridors so there are several stations surrounding it: "Tallinn-Väike" on the Tallinn–Pärnu/Viljandi line; "Lilleküla", "Tondi" and "Järve" on Tallinn–Paldiski/Riisipere line and "Kitseküla" on Tallinn–Aegviidu line. All these stations are served by Elron trains.

A. Le Coq Arena (Lilleküla Stadium), the home ground of the Estonia national football team and FC Flora football club, is located in the northwestern corner of Kitseküla, between the diverging railway lines.
