In 2008, the station was refurbished as part of a £17 million investment package by NI Railways to improve access for disabled passengers and provide better lighting, signage, and seating.

Whiteabbey is technically the next stop on the line, however, two services each way stop here in accordance with the current timetable. At other times, trains only call at York Street prior to Lanyon Place, hence missing out Whiteabbey.
