Paisley St James railway station is on the Inverclyde Line, serving one of the residential districts of the town, just west of the town centre. For passengers travelling to the commercial district, Paisley Gilmour Street is the main railway station of Paisley and is located in the heart of Paisley town centre. There is an ongoing campaign to rename the station "Paisley St Mirren" due the station's proximity to St Mirren's new stadium.
There is a half-hourly service available from here Mon-Sat daytimes, westbound to Greenock Central and Gourock and eastbound to Glasgow Central. Wemyss Bay trains normally skip this station during the daytime, only calling on weekday and Saturday evenings. On Sunday, there is an hourly service each way.

On 13 October 2016, Glasgow Airport Rail Link plans were revived with a PRT option proposed. If this plan goes ahead, then Paisley St James would be relocated to a site next to Junction 29 of the M8. A PRT to the airport is also proposed from this station.
