History

The first station of Lent opened in 1882 and was closed in 1934 because there were too few passengers. During World War II, the station was opened again twice, in 1940 and 1941 and when the bridge into Nijmegen was blown up, this was the terminating station for trains from Arnhem temporarily.

The station was reopened on 1 June 2002 as part of the Waalsprong development of Nijmegen.
