The ticket office, on the 'down' side, is situated in the substantial station building. This is manned only during part of the day; at other times a PERTIS passenger-operated ticket machine used to issue 'Permits to Travel' (which were exchanged on-train or at manned stations for travel tickets), but has since been replaced by a machine offering pickup of pre-booked tickets only.
The station is very close to Ebbsfleet International station (the NNE entrance is only 334 yards (305 m) from Northfleet's station), but passengers (using public transport) will find it far easier to access Ebbsfleet International from Gravesend or Greenhithe, as these stations are more accessible and offer easy access to Fastrack bus services. The walking route between the two stations is 0.6 miles (1 km) or 0.8 miles (1.3 km) and a suitable pedestrian link has not been built because of funding issues and objections from Land Securities.
The typical off-peak service from the station is:
