During the rush periods, additional trains operate on the Manchester-Southport service. In the evening, trains operate hourly in each direction between Manchester Victoria and Wigan.

A waiting shelter with bench seating is installed at the centre of the island platform. While the ticket office is accessible from street level, the platforms are accessible via staircase only.
