It is served by the Northern, Northeastern and Southern lines. All passenger trains passing must stop at this station. Sam Sen Station is on Thoet Damri Road, Sam Sen Nai, Phaya Thai District. About 3,000-5,000 people use this station daily.

Sam Sen Station is a Class 1 Station, number code: 1004, English alphabet code: SSN. There are two platforms. Platform 1 is for trains heading to further destinations along the routes.
