Reversal at the station have been carried out using automatic train operation since June 2008. Platform screen doors were installed to protect passengers from falling under driverless trains. It was the first station on the metro to be so equipped, except on Line 14, which was built for automatic operations at its inception. A rubber-tired tramway (Line 6) from Châtillon to Vélizy-Villacoublay (later Viroflay) opened in 2014.
