The Euskotren 1,000 mm (3 ft 3+38 in) metre gauge services operate from a station on the forecourt of the SNCF station, for which separate ticketing is required.

The station is a border railway station where all trains have to stop, as those coming from/going into Spain have to change gauge from 1,435 mm (4 ft 8+12 in) standard gauge to 1,668 mm (5 ft 5+2132 in) Iberian gauge. The electric supply also changes here from 1500 V DC (overhead France) to 3000 V DC (overhead Spain). Between the stations of Hendaye and Irun, both track gauges run together.
