Sakudaira Station is served by the JR East Hokuriku Shinkansen high-speed line (formerly named the Nagano Shinkansen) from Tokyo to Kanazawa via Nagano, with direct Asama services to and from Tokyo and Nagano, and a small number of limited-stop Hakutaka services to and from Tokyo and Kanazawa. On the Shinkansen line, it is located 164.4 kilometers from Tokyo Station.
