A new building on the Manchester-bound platform houses the ticket office and a waiting room. The main station building on the Liverpool-bound platform was disused for many years in the 1990s, but was re-opened as a pub/restaurant in June 2008. The station is staffed part-time (06:15 to 12:45 weekdays, 07:00 to 13:30 Saturdays, closed Sundays) - outside these times, tickets must be bought in advance or on the train. Train running details are provided by telephone, automated announcements and timetable posters. Step-free access is available to both platforms.
Services run half-hourly in both directions towards Warrington Central and Liverpool Lime Street to the west and towards Humphrey Park and Manchester Oxford Road in the east. Services run hourly in the evening (certain westbound trains terminate at Warrington) and on Sundays.
