Te Papapa Railway Station is on the Onehunga Branch section of the Onehunga Line, one of the lines of the Auckland railway network in New Zealand. It has a side platform layout and is reached from Mays Rd.

The Onehunga Branch line was opened in December 1873,[1] and a station was first opened at Te Papapa in April 1877.[2] The branch line was closed in 1973 and reopened 37 years later with the ceremonial opening of Onehunga Line services on 18 September 2010.[3]

Te Papapa station was reopened on 18 September 2010 and fare-paying services began again on 19 September 2010.[citation needed]
