The station is located between Wellington and Bay Streets. Trains are wheelchair accessible (immediate for eastbound passengers but 24 hours' notice required for westbound passengers). It opens as a shelter 30 minutes prior to train arrival and remains open for 30 minutes after train departure. The ticket counter has been replaced by a self-service kiosk. There is free outdoor parking on the premises.
The station was built in 1885 by the Grand Trunk Railway after its acquisition of the Great Western Railway, which was purchased in 1882 and ultimately merged into the Canadian National Railway in 1920. The building is Gothic Revival with Italianate elements by architect Joseph Hobson and renovated in 1986 with Edwardian themed interior/exterior. The station building was designated a Heritage Railway Station in 1993.
