Maltepe railway station is located in Maltepe, İstanbul. The station is 14.3 km (8.9 mi) east from Haydarpaşa Terminal and is located directly southeast of the historical city center of Maltepe. The station has 2 platforms for passenger traffic and 2 freight platforms. The Haydarpaşa-Gebze Line and the Haydarpaşa-Adapazarı Regional service the station, as intercity trains skip Maltepe. The station was originally opened in 1872 by the Ottoman Government as part of a railway from İstanbul to İzmit. The government sold the station to the Anatolian Railway in 1888, which was later taken over by the Turkish State Railways in 1927. The station used to be a main freight depot, but when the branch line serving the Maltepe military pier was abandoned freight operations declined greatly.
