On the North Downs Line, the station is managed by Southern, which use it as one of their termini and provide an hourly direct service to London Bridge.Unknown extension tag "ref" First Great Western provide services to Reading via Guildford and Gatwick Airport via Redhill.


First-time users are often confused how to get between platforms when the ticket office is shut: there is a signposted but often overlooked underpass approximately 15 metres east of the ticket office over to Platform 2. On Sundays the ticket office is shut, so access to the less-used north platform (1) is enabled via a gate set into the fence approximately 40 metres further away from the subway. Westbound services to Dorking, Guildford and Reading always leave from the south platform (2); as a terminus, so too does the service to London Bridge via Redhill. Eastbound services toward Gatwick Airport via Redhill leave from platform 1.


The weekday off-peak service is two tphUnknown extension tag "ref" to Reading and three to Redhill (both on multi-operator served main lines) of which one continues to Gatwick Airport and one to London Bridge.
