Fruitvale Road railway station is on the Western Line of the Auckland railway network. It is near local schools, including two major high schools.
The station was opened on 28 September 1953.
In 2006/2007, the station was closed over summer to be upgraded, and lengthened for 6-car trains.
It is named after a nearby road. The road is not very well known, thus new passengers will most likely have no idea which suburb this station serves. It has been proposed to rename it 'Kelston' since it is in that suburb. It is quite close to Kelston Shopping Centre, Kelston Girls' College and Kelston Deaf Education Centre.
