The large Yoker Traction Maintenance Depot, which looks after the EMU fleet used on North Clyde suburban services, is located a short distance to the south (between here and Garscadden). Yoker IECC is also nearby - this has controlled the signalling on the entire North Clyde network since established by British Rail in 1989.
There is a basic weekdays & Saturday daytime service of 4tph (every 15 minutes) in each direction, northbound to Dalmuir via Clydebank and southbound to Partick. From here alternate services run via Queen Street Low Level to Cumbernauld via Springburn and via Central Low Level to Larkhall via Rutherglen (2tph to each route). Services towards Dalmuir from the Argyle line, however, are from Cumbernauld (hourly) or Motherwell (both trains per hour) via Hamilton.
With the most recent timetable change in December 2014, the Yoker line now receives 4tph all day on Mondays-Saturdays (previously the evening Argyle line services were cut back to Partick). The evening service on the North Clyde line becomes 2tph between Helensburgh Central and Edinburgh Waverley. The Sunday service runs between Balloch & alternately Motherwell via Whifflet and Larkhall.
