The Greenford branch of the Great Western Railway (GWR) had been used for regular passenger services since 1904, but the halt at South Greenford did not open until 20 September 1926. Originally named South Greenford Halt, the suffix was dropped on 5 May 1969.
At present, signage on the station carries, in smaller font, an alternative name for the station. The alternative name is "West Perivale".
The normal service from the station runs every day except Sunday until about 2100 with two trains per hour towards Greenford and two trains per hour to London Paddington via Ealing Broadway. The station is unmanned. As of October 2008[update], Oyster "pay as you go" can be used for journeys to and from South Greenford.
As well as the passenger trains serving South Greenford, the Greenford branch also carries freight traffic, mainly waste and aggregates as well as some empty passenger stock movements.
London Buses route 95 serve the station.
