HistoryEdit

The station opened, as a railway station, on 1 October 1908 as part of the Hofpleinlijn (Den Haag - Rotterdam Hofplein). From 20 May 1977 the station was also served by services from Den Haag operating on the Zoetermeerlijn, operating Zoetermeer Stadslijn services. The train station closed on 3 June 2006 and reopened as a RandstadRail station on 29 October 2006 for the HTM tram services (3 & 4) and on 11 November 2006 for the RET metro service (line E).

The station features 2 platforms on either side of a viaduct. These have a high and a low platform, with RandstadRail 3 and RandstadRail 4 using the lower platforms, and line E using the higher platforms.

Close to the station, but on the opposite side of the Rijn-Schiekanaal, is Leidschendam Nedtrain depot. Trains used to access this depot along this line, but when the line was converted to RandstadRail, the Nootdorp Boog was built, coming off the Den Haag - Gouda railway line, and NS trains run parallel to the RandstadRail line between the split between the Hofpleinlijn and the Zoetermeerlijn and Leidschendam Depot.
