Pipera is a metro station in Bucharest, located in the Pipera district. Opened in October 1987, it is the northern terminus of Line M2.[1]

The initial scope of the station was to serve the large Pipera industrial estate. Since the end of industry in Romania however, the station is now used by the new business and residential estates established here.

RATB tram lines 16 and 36 stop outside the station building.[2][3] Night bus N125 also stops here.[4]

Layout[edit]

The station has two side platforms. Northbound trains reverse in the sidings to the east of the station which can be seen from the platforms. To make room for them, southbound trains leave as northbound trains arrive.

Above platform level is a vestibule with a number of shops. This station has lifts for the disabled.[5]
