The station is managed by First ScotRail and is located on the main Edinburgh to Aberdeen Line, 54 km (33¼ miles) north of Edinburgh Waverley. The station was recently rebuilt to include a new building and park and ride facilities and is now the main station for passengers travelling to Glenrothes, Leven, Buckhaven, Methil and the East of Fife. There are up to ten buses an hour connecting the station with Glenrothes and four to the Levenmouth area. A cycle route has also been completed along the former Leslie Railway into Glenrothes.
