Train services call at Manor Park as part of the Shenfield-Liverpool Street stopping "metro" service. From 2018, the station will be fully served by Crossrail, linking Manor Park to additional stations in central London as well as Reading and London Heathrow Airport.

In normal operation all services use platforms 1 and 2. Platforms 3 and 4, on the through-lines, are generally only operational during engineering works that affect the other lines. An additional short, unnumbered, platform face is present to the south of platform 1 but is not in operation; the track behind it is used as a freight loop.
Manor Park station will be served by Crossrail from 2018. The platforms will not be lengthened so selective door operation will be used instead. In addition to this, the freight loop at the station will be removed. Due to the narrow platforms, and the layout of the station, fitting lifts for disabled access would be difficult and expensive, requiring the walkways to be rebuilt and closing the station for several months. Like all the other Crossrail stations, this station will be made accessible.
