The station sits on the Styal Line to Manchester Airport, one of the congested lines on the national rail network. Historically it has been served by a half-hourly service to Manchester Airport/Crewe and Manchester Piccadilly.
Since May 2018 services operate on a 'skip-stop' basis at irregular intervals to increase capacity on the line. As a designated Northern Connect stop, a direct express service to Blackpool North via Chorley was introduced as part of this timetable change. This was replaced by calls on services between Windermere/Barrow-in-Furness and Manchester Airport running via Wigan North Western as part of the December 2019 timetable change.
The current Monday to Saturday service is a roughly half hourly service to Manchester Airport and Manchester Piccadilly, with one southbound train per hour continuing to Crewe via Wilmslow. Northbound services continue to Liverpool Lime Street or Barrow-in-Furness/Windermere via Preston.
On Sundays, Burnage is served by one train per hour in each direction to Wilmslow via Manchester Airport, and Liverpool Lime Street via Manchester Piccadilly. Services between Barrow-in-Furness/Windermere and Manchester Airport still run but do not call at Burnage, instead calling at East Didsbury.
