Wellington Railway Station is at the heart of the Metlink rail network. All four lines converge at the station delivering commuters and visitors into the heart of Wellington City.

The station is also one of Wellington's historic landmark buildings having been opened in 1937.

All of our rail lines run into Wellington station. Not only can you purchase tickets and talk to our friendly people at the information kiosk but it is also the major interchange to the Metlink bus network. There are a number of cafes, a bar, shoe repairs, drycleaners and even a supermarket within the building.

The station provides easy access to a range of Wellington's top attractions. You can get directions and information on public transport options on the Locate tab of our Journey Planner on the home page. (external link)

Station information

Maintenance in the Lambton Interchange Atrium Building

Maintenance is being undertaken in the toilets in the main Lambton Interchange Atrium Building, and they are currently closed. The elevator in the same building is also under repair. We will give updates on the timeframe for these repairs once we have more details from the contractors. 

Alternative toilets are located within the Railway Station building.  The escalator within the atrium building is working, however the nearest elevator to take you to level 1 is located via the main subway over at Stop D. 

We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause during this time.
