Burnage railway station is a railway station in south Manchester, England, in the suburb of Burnage on the Styal Line. The station is served by Manchester – Crewe Northern stopping services to Manchester Airport. It caters mainly for commuter traffic, being electrified at 25 kV AC overhead, and is used by EMU traffic.
The station sits on the Styal Line to Manchester Airport, one of the congested lines on the national rail network. Historically it has been served by a half-hourly service to Manchester Airport/Crewe and Manchester Piccadilly, however since May 2018 services operate on a 'skip-stop' basis at irregular intervals to increase capacity on the line. As a designated Northern Connect stop, a direct express service to Preston via Blackpool North was introduced as part of this timetable change.
The current Monday to Saturday service is a half hourly service to Manchester Airport and Manchester Piccadilly, with one southbound train per hour continuing to Crewe via Wilmslow. Northbound services continue to Liverpool Lime Street or Blackpool North via Preston.
On Sundays, Burnage is served by one train per hour in each direction to Wilmslow via Manchester Airport, and Liverpool Lime Street via Manchester Piccadilly.
