The station was opened on 30 September 1940 and was originally known as Canley Halt, the 'Halt' suffix was later dropped. It was built primarily to serve the Standard Motor Company works alongside.
There was a railway level crossing adjacent to the station until 2002 (approximately) when the road was closed and a footbridge was built over the railway line. Level crossings at Berkswell railway station and Tile Hill railway station were removed in 2004 (approximate date) to upgrade the line for more high speed trains.
It is situated on the edge of Coventry Business Park, to the south of the Coventry suburb of Earlsdon and close to the University of Warwick. It has two platforms, a small booking office and waiting room. It has two trains per hour in each direction during the week. Being on the main route from Birmingham to Coventry, most trains pass through the station.
Canley is served by two trains per hour (one on Sundays) between Birmingham New Street and Coventry. One southbound train per hour continues beyond Coventry to London Euston, via Northampton.
