Bebington railway station serves the town of Bebington on the Wirral Peninsula, England. The station is situated on the Chester and Ellesmere Port branches of the Wirral Line, forming part of the Merseyrail network. The station is on the former Chester and Birkenhead Railway, which formally opened in 1840. The station was officially renamed from Bebington & New Ferry to Bebington on 6 May 1974. Direct train services to Liverpool began in 1985, when the line between Rock Ferry and Hooton was electrified; previously passengers for Liverpool had to change at Rock Ferry. Further electrification in early 1990s allowed electric train services to be extended, first to Chester in 1993 and then Ellesmere Port in 1994. Between mid February and Mid March 2015, the Subway leading to Platform 1 was refurbished. An electronic information board was also added at the street entrance.

Additionally there is a half-hourly service between Liverpool and Ellesmere Port all day, every day. Northbound trains operate via Hamilton Square station in Birkenhead and the Mersey Railway Tunnel to Liverpool. Southbound trains all proceed as far as Hooton, where the lines to Chester and Ellesmere Port divide. These services are all provided by Merseyrail's fleet of Class 507 and Class 508 EMUs.
