The new station is on the Proastiakos, the Athens suburban railway run by TrainOSE, connecting directly with the city of Athens and with Athens International Airport. When the station opened on 27 September 2005, it was the line's terminus. It remained so until 9 July 2007, when the line was extended to Kiato. As of 2013 trains run hourly in each direction.[4]

The station has five platforms, but only two are presently in use. In the subway to the platforms, copies of ancient artifacts excavated during the station's construction are on display. A cafe is located at the entrance to the station. There is a large, free car park, a bus stop and a taxi rank.
