The station was opened on 11 April 1848.
For many years it was served only by peak-time services on Mondays to Saturdays. On a trial basis in the 1990s, one service each way made a request stop on a Sunday, however this was not a success.
When Northern Ireland Railways introduced a new clock-face timetable in the mid-2000s, the station once again saw a regular service seven days a week, with nearly all trains serving the station. Trooperslane also has a level crossing, supervised by closed-circuit television.
On Mondays to Fridays, there is a half-hourly service to Great Victoria Street with extra trains at peak times. In the other direction, there is a half-hourly service with the terminus alternating between Whitehead and Larne Harbour every half an hour, with extra services to Carrickfergus at peak times.
On Saturdays, the service remains half-hourly, with fewer trains at peak times.
On Sundays, the service reduces to hourly operation in both directions.
