Other facilities include modern waiting shelters with seating, passenger information screens, cycle racks and wheelchair access. The station and the trains that pass through are managed by Merseyrail. There are up to eight services an hour southbound to Liverpool Central with a journey time of approximately 6 minutes and four an hour heading northbound to Southport, getting passengers there in approximately 41 minutes.
