The station served as the terminus of the line until its closure. Services initially ran westward to Park Pobedy, but from 2017, the functioning line extended onward to Ramenki. This station closed in February 2018 for an indefinite, but extended period. Trains on that line bypass Delovoy Tsentr and run directly to Shelepikha where it continues along the Bolshaya Koltsevaya line.
The original route of the Solntsevskaya branch of the line through Delovoy Tsentr reflected the fact that the branch does not have an active rail yard. Trains would shift from Delovoy Tsentr to the Arbatsko–Pokrovskaya line and onward to the Izmailovo yard. As the Bolshaya Koltsevaya line uses the Izmailovo yard, trains operate along the new route to Petrovsky Park and onward to the yard. In the meantime, there is no timeline for Delovoy Tsentr to reopen. However, it could be several years as completion of the central branch of the line to Tretyakovskaya has not yet begun.
