The line is unelectrified and services are operated by Class 171 Turbostar diesel trains.
A staffed booking office is provided in the building on the Ashford-bound platform. PERTIS passenger-operated self-service ticket machines have now been removed and replaced with a new Ticket Vending machine, which allows a ticket to be purchased from any origin, as opposed to just from Ham Street. PERTIS passenger-operated self-service machines were installed in connection with a Penalty Fares Scheme in 2008, are were located on both platforms. Customers are now required to purchase a ticket from the Ticket Vending Machine on the Ashford platform, if the facilities are available to purchase the ticket the customer requires.
The typical service is:
- 1 train per hour (tph) to Ashford International. Most passengers who wish to travel to London change here, and since Winter 2009 customers have been able to change to High Speed services to St. Pancras International with a journey time of 37 minutes from Ashford International.
- 1 train per hour to Brighton, calling at Appledore (Kent), Rye, Hastings, St Leonards Warrior Square, Bexhill, Eastbourne, Hampden Park (Sundays only), Polegate (every day), Berwick (Sundays only), Glynde (Sundays only) and Lewes (every day)
- At peak times an additional shuttle service runs hourly between Ashford International and Rye giving two trains an hour in each direction.
