Ranui Railway Station is located on the Western Line of the Auckland rail network in New Zealand. It serves the communities of Ranui and Pooks Road, in the Waitakere City suburb of Ranui.

Services[edit]

Western Line suburban train services, between Swanson and Britomart, are provided by Transdev on behalf of Auckland Transport.

Stabling project[edit]

As part of upgrades to Auckland's urban rail network, ARTA had proposed building a stabling yard to store up to 11 trains to the west of the station. The yard was to be used to clean trains when out of service, and there were to be staff car parking and welfare facilities. Due to opposition from locals this was abandoned and the stabling yard was moved to Henderson.
