The station is fully accessible for wheelchair users, with ramps from the road to both platforms. Ticket machines are available for passengers to buy or collect pre-paid tickets prior to travel.

Monday to Saturday daytime there is a half-hourly service to Leeds, with alternate services continuing to Bradford Interchange and Halifax.
