The two platforms sit alongside the Cornish Main Line on the route between Plymouth and Penzance. It’s an unstaffed station with no facilities for purchasing tickets, so they need to be bought online in advance or on board the train with the guard. Facilities at the station including waiting shelters on both platforms, bench seating, help points and racks for locking up bicycles. There is an hourly direct departure to Plymouth in 10 minutes and an irregular hourly direct departure westbound to Penzance in 1 hour 47 minutes.
