Neoi Epivates (Greek: Νέοι Επιβάτες) is a small suburban town outside Thessaloniki, next to Peraia. It is part of the municipality of Thermaikos in the Thessaloniki regional unit.[1] The origin of the settlement was the arrival of 631 refugees from the town Epivates in Eastern Thrace as a result of the Greco-Turkish War (1919–22).

It was formerly known in Turkish as Bahçe Çiflik (Greek: Μπαξέ Τσιφλίκι),[citation needed] mentioned also in a popular song of Vassilis Tsitsanis.
