Kiato Railway Station Greece

Kiato Railway Station Greece is a railway station located 1 km west of Kiato in northern Peloponnese. It is served by the Athens Suburban Railway towards Piraeus and by Hellenic Train local services to Aigio. It should not be confused with the old, now-closed railway station on the Piraeus-Patras line, which is located northeast of the current station and closer to the coast of the Corinthian Gulf.

As of 2020, the station is served by Line 2 of the Proastiakos Athens suburban rail network with eighteen hourly trains to and from Athens, seventeen trains to and from Piraeus and six trains to and from Aigio. The station buildings are located on platform 1, while sheltered seating and an air-conditioned indoor passenger shelter are available at platform level. The station is also equipped with Dot-matrix display departure and arrival screens and timetable poster boards.

The KTEL bus lines that connect Athens KTEL Kifissos with Patras run hourly and offer connections to Kiato, for an easy alternative to the train. It’s also possible to take a non-stop substitution bus from Athens to Kiato and continue on by train from there, although this can be a bit less convenient than taking the direct bus and will add 3 or 4 hours of travel.

The narrow gauge railway from Athens to Patras was closed for rebuilding in July 2010; now, it’s better to take a train as far as Kiato and then take the local Hellenic Train bus from there to Patras. A ticket for this journey can be bought on the day of travel for around EUR18, and includes the cost of a seat on the bus.
