The station is currently managed by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI). However, the commercial area of the passenger building is managed by Centostazioni. Train services are operated by Trenitalia. Each of these companies is a subsidiary of Ferrovie dello Stato (FS), Italy's state-owned rail company.
The original operator of the station was the Società Generalle delle Strade Ferrate Romane (English: General Company for the Roman Railways). In the reorganization of the Italian railways in 1865, the Kingdom of Italy entrusted its operation to the Società per le Strade Ferrate Meridionali (SFM) (English: Company for the Southern Railways). The latter company retained that function until the nationalization of the Italian railways in 1905.
During its history, the station has suffered severe setbacks, although the city has been constantly developing.
In 1935, the original passenger building was replaced by the present structure, designed by the architect Roberto Narducci.
The station yard has thirteen tracks, of which five are dedicated to passenger traffic.
The passenger tracks are served by three platforms accessible to users through a pedestrian underpass - lifts are available. The busiest passenger tracks are track 2, used by southbound trains, and track 3, which serves northbound trains. Tracks 1, 4 and 5 are used infrequently, generally for trains either originating or terminating in Pesaro.
During the summer, the station serves as a terminus for treni del mare (English: trains of the sea): interregional trains organized by Ferrovie Emilia Romagna, and originating in Bergamo, Brescia, Cremona and Mantua.
