Coventry Arena railway station sits just north of Coventry and is one of the United Kingdom’s newest stations having only opened in 2016 along the Coventry-Nuneaton Line. It was built to serve the city’s cutting-edge Ricoh Arena, though the station closes for an hour before and after events as it struggles to cope with the foot fall. The two platforms and the trains that pass through are managed and operated by West Midlands Trains. The long, unmanned station has facilities including glass shelters, passenger announcements, and electronic displays with timetable information. There are also gates with holding facilities in use during event days. There is one direct service every hour throughout weekday peak hours to Coventry in 8 minutes and Nuneaton in 15 minutes.

Few passengers use Coventry Area station for commuting. Its main purpose is to serve the Ricoh Arena. The 40-acre complex includes a 32,600-seat stadium used by the Wasps and the Coventry City football club, exhibition space, a hotel, and a casino.
