It was opened on 1 June 1928 by the Belfast and County Down Railway to serve the rapidly expanding suburbs of Bangor. It was initially provided with a wooden structure on the up side to function as waiting room and ticket office.
It was replaced with a simple, more robust concrete structure in 1978. It remains one of the few intermediate suburban stations in Northern Ireland to retain a ticket office. This is owed to the station's high popularity and usage, being served by the Bangor express train, one of the few stations in North Down to be served.
Mondays to Saturdays there is a half hourly service towards Belfast Central, Belfast Great Victoria Street, Portadown, or Newry in the westbound direction, and to Bangor in the other eastbound direction. Extra services operate at peak times, and the service reduces to hourly in the evenings.
On Sundays there is an hourly service in each direction.
