One of two stations serving the town of Warrington, Warrington Central Railway Station sees regular Northern trains operating on the Liverpool to Manchester Line. Eight trains from Warrington Central depart hourly, of which two in each direction are Northern stopping services to Liverpool Lime Street and Manchester Oxford Road. TransPennine Express operates an hourly service between Liverpool Lime Street, as well as an express hourly service to Scarborough via Leeds and York.

At all other times, passengers should use the self-service ticketing machines installed at the station ahead of travel.
