It is located approximately eleven kilometres to the north of Helsinki Central railway station.

The station serves the M line between Central Helsinki and Vantaankoski, between the stations of Kannelmäki and Myyrmäki.

The station has two platforms, one for southbound and one for northbound trains, and is quite unique in that the majority of the station is situated inside a tunnel with trains stopping 220 metres (720 ft) inside it.
