As of 2014[update] one ticket machine serves the town which has 18,041 residents (2011 census) resulting in peak-hour queueing. It has a single manned ticket counter (on the London-bound platform) and a semi permanently located, independently operated café operate in peak hours. A pay and display car park is adjacent to the London-bound platform. A subway passes from the A316 / M3 / Staines Road East / Staines Road West traffic roundabout and flyover at the end of the station's approach. The subway leads to the main shopping and hotels area of Sunbury Cross. Some free parking is by the Shepperton-bound platform.
The Shepperton branch opened to passengers with a single track on 1 November 1864. Its promoters' scheme first intended to link this to what became today's District line and potentially to Woking railway station. A second scheme (abandoned 1862) intended it to extend to the Middlesex bank of the Thames east of Chertsey Bridge to serve the established town of Chertsey. The curve linking Fulwell and Teddington initially opened to freight on 1 July 1894 and then carried passengers on 1 June 1901 as the replacement principal route. The line was electrified on 30 January 1916.
The typical weekday hourly service at the station is:
- 2 trains to London Waterloo via Kingston and Clapham Junction
- 2 trains from London Waterloo by that route.
The Saturday service is as on other weekdays without the extra services routed via Twickenham. On Sundays the service is hourly.
