The station is the first stop after Radyr on the Cardiff City Line 3 miles (5 km) north of Cardiff Central. The City Line was freight only from its opening (in 1859) until 1987, when British Rail introduced an hourly passenger service between Cardiff Central and Radyr.
Both of the station's two platforms are accessible for disabled passengers via ramps. The Cardiff Central-bound platform is accessible via a bridge, whilst the Radyr-bound platform is accessible via a residential road (Beale Close) off the main road (Danescourt Way). A footbridge links the two platforms.
Some non-stop passenger trains pass through in both directions.
The typical Monday-Saturday off-peak service is:
- 2 trains per hour in each direction: Eastbound to Coryton via Cardiff Central and Cardiff Queen Street, and westbound to Radyr, which is the next station along.
Journey times from Danescourt are 12 minutes to Cardiff Central and seven minutes to Radyr. There is no Sunday service.
