The station has a frequent service - currently four departures per hour each way, to Bargoed northbound and to Caerphilly, Cardiff Central and Penarth southbound. One northbound train each hour continues to Rhymney, with extras at peak times. In the evening, the service reduces to hourly each way and on Sundays to two-hourly (when southbound trains run to Barry Island rather than Penarth).[2]
