Today New Cross Gate is on the East London Line of the London Overground, with northbound services to Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington, and southbound services to West Croydon and Crystal Palace. Other trains to New Cross Gate include services from London Victoria, London Bridge, Horsham and Caterham. Running east from the station towards the nearby New Cross station is New Cross Road, with its collection of pubs, bars and restaurants.
