Paiania–Kantza station is located north east of the town of Paiania in East Attica. This station first opened to Proastiakos trains on 30 July 2004,[2] with Athens Metro services calling at this station from 10 July 2006.[3]

The station's platforms have two levels, with each end serving trains from either the Athens Metro or Proastiakos: Proastiakos Kiato-Airport line trains stop at the southern end while Athens Metro Line 3 trains stop at the northern end.[4] As of 2013 the station is served by three Proastiakos trains per hour to the airport, two to Ano Liosia and one to Kiato.[5]


Although the station signs mention the name Paiania-Kantza, all trains' announcements call the station simply Kantza.
