Facilities here are very basic. The station is unstaffed and there are no permanent buildings present, other than standard shelters. Travellers towards Lancaster and Manchester benefit from a ticket vending and collection machine, though travellers for Barrow and the Cumbrian Coast are urged to buy tickets in advance or from the Northern Railway App to avoid penalty fares. As of Spring 2021, train running information is provided by digital display, telephone and timetable posters. Step-free access to the platforms is available via a ramp on the south side from the nearby road bridge that also acts as the link between the two and directly from the adjacent road on the northbound side.
Roose is served by Northern Trains, who operate a basic hourly service with some two hour gaps between Barrow-in-Furness and Lancaster. Certain trains are extended northwards to Workington and Carlisle, and several southbound services are extended to Preston or Manchester Airport. A similar service operates on Sundays.
