Trains leave or arrive approximately every 20 minutes during peak periods, hourly otherwise. It is 30.5 miles from Grand Central Terminal and the average travel time to Grand Central is 47 minutes. There is also bus service to the station from Pace University.
This station is located in the Zone 5 Metro-North fare zone.
The New York and Harlem Railroad laid tracks through Pleasantville during the 1840s. Evidence of the existence of Pleasantville station can be found as far back as October 1846. The existing station house was built by the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad in 1905. The station also had freight sidings for the shipping deparment of the headquarters of Reader's Digest. In 1959, the New York Central Railroad undertook a grade separation project that lowered the tracks through town and eliminated several grade crossings. As with most of the Harlem Line, the merger of New York Central with Pennsylvania Railroad in 1968 transformed the station into a Penn Central Railroad station. Penn Central's continuous financial despair throughout the 1970s forced them to turn over their commuter service to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority which made it part of Metro-North in 1983. When the Harlem Line was electrified between North White Plains and Brewster North in 1984, less reconstruction was required at Pleasantville than with other stations.
