It was later renamed South Tottenham in the late ‘40s. Today, it’s a busy commuter station serving over half a million passengers annually from its three platforms, most of which use their Oyster card as it lies with Travelcard zone 3. Today, the station and the trains that pass through are managed by London Overground.

There are up to four direct trains an hour direct to Gospel Oak in 13 minutes and Barking in 24 minutes.
