In 2005, the Irish Government announced that, as part of its Transport 21 plan, the line between Clonsilla and Navan would be reopened for passenger trains in two stages. This line had closed in 1963. Phase 1 of this project from Clonsilla to M3 Parkway, the terminus until Phase 2 opens to Navan.
M3 Parkway opened on 3 September 2010, as part of phase one of the Navan rail line reopening.
All other times including all day Saturday and Sunday : Passengers can travel directly between M3 Parkway and Dunboynne, Hansfield, and Clonsilla but need to transfer at Clonsilla to Maynooth to Dublin city centre services for travel to any other stations.
Passengers also transfer at Clonsilla :
The station is served by Bus Eireann 111 service (Wilton Terrace - City Centre – Trim – Athboy – Granard – Cavan)
There was uncertainty over the station's name, as it variously appears as Pace M3, M3 Park and Ride, and Pace (M3 Park and Ride). Unlike the preceding Dunboyne station, there was no previous station at this location. As of summer 2010 signs in the station display the name M3 Parkway.
