Maesteg railway station is one of two railway stations that serve the town of Maesteg in Wales. The British Rail 1992 built station is located in the centre of the town, adjacent to the Asda Supermarket store and on former sidings.
The station is now the terminus of the Maesteg Line from Cardiff via Bridgend. Previously, the line continued northbound through the old Maesteg station which closed with the withdrawal of passenger services in 1970. The former station platforms and footbridge still exist, although the track has now been removed and there is heavy tree and plant growth at the location.
The general service pattern is one train per hour to Cardiff Central via Bridgend, with most trains extended to Cheltenham Spa via Newport, Chepstow, Lydney and Gloucester.
Passenger services are operated by Arriva Trains Wales.
There are two long-distance daily services to Maesteg. One of these starts at Chester, and the other runs from Holyhead.
The first train of the day is an Ebbw Vale Parkway service.
There is no Sunday service.
