The naming is unusual in that the current title of the town (which was originally New Kilpatrick), was taken from the station name, rather than the town giving its name to the station.
The station has a car park with 92 spaces, and a staffed ticket office from Monday to Saturday.
Trains to Glasgow operate on a regular schedule, with a departure once every 15 minutes from Monday to Saturday during the daytime. Two trains per hour go via Glasgow Central on the Argyle Line (and on to Motherwell), while the other two travel via Queen Street to Edinburgh Waverley (limited stop) on the North Clyde Line. Edinburgh trains do not run in the evenings & on Sundays.
Trains also go northbound towards Milngavie from Monday to Saturday during the daytime every 15 minutes and half-hourly on evenings and Sundays.
