Faygate Station is located on the Arun Valley Line, between Littlehaven and Ifield, 34.4 miles (55 km) from London Bridge. It serves the small village of Faygate and the Faygate Business Centre, situated on the A264 in the countryside between Crawley and Horsham.
The single track branch line of the London Brighton and South Coast Railway between Three Bridges and Horsham was opened 14 February 1848. Crawley and Faygate were intermediate stations each with two platforms to enable trains to pass. The line was doubled throughout during 1862 to coincide with the extension of the railway from Horsham to the Arun Valley.
The station is unstaffed, and is served mostly in the peak hours. As of April 2015, there are 11 northbound and 12 southbound trains calling at the station on weekdays with no trains in either direction on weekends. Northbound, trains run from Horsham to either London Bridge or London Victoria; one of these trains is extended from Littlehampton. Southbound, trains run from London to Horsham; one of these trains is extended to Southampton Central.
